At Budget 2014, the implications of recent federal budgets for support of business innovation and academic research will be explored. The conference will take place in Ottawa at the National Arts Centre on April 22nd and 23rd, 2014.
Professor Dalziel will be on the final panel, participating in a discussion on how to measure success. She has vast expertise in this area as co-founder and Vice President of Research for The Evidence Network, a company that provides impact assessments for innovators, entrepreneurs, researchers and companies. Professor Dalziel's recent appointment as Chair of the Expert Panel Examining Business Support Programs in Ontario positions her well to offer insight into the conference's broader themes surrounding innovation support programs. At the Conrad Centre, Professor Dalziel draws from her expertise to teach courses in Entrepreneurial Applications of Technology and Entrepreneurship and Innovation.
