  • Articles and reports: 88-003-X19990014623
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    A new framework developed by Statistics Canada's, Science, Innovation and Electronic Information Division classifies the science and technology (S&T) process into activities - the generation, transmission and use of knowledge - as well as linkages and outcomes. By asking some essential questions, the framework can help us better understand the relationship between science and technology and other activities and, ultimately, its impact on society.

  • Articles and reports: 88-003-X19990014625
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    To gauge the scope of Canadian contributions to global scientific knowledge, researchers turned to bibliometrics - the science of measuring published material. They found interesting patters at work in Canada, both in terms of subject matter and the nature of our collaborations.

    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    New firms are seen to play a key role in the innovation process, especially in certain key sectors of the economy. This study therefore examines the differences in the profiles of successful new firms in science-based industries and other industries. The firms that are examined are entrants who survey into their early teen years. The study examines numerous factors that are seen to influence the success of new businesses. These include the competitive environment, business strategies and the financial structure of the businesses.

    Successful new firms in science-based industries are found to differ in a number of dimensions from new firms in other industries. They are more likely to be exporters. They face greater technological change and intense competition with regards to the rate at which new products are being introduced. They tend to put more emphasis on quality, the frequent introduction of new products and the customization of products. They make greater use of information technology. They place more stress on new technology development, research and development facilities and the use of intellectual property. They are much more likely to innovate and they place more importance on recruiting skilled labour and on training. Finally, they are more likely to use non-traditional financial measures to evaluate performance and they are less likely to rely on secured credit for financing both their research and development activity and their machinery and equipment that are firms in other sectors.

    Description:

    Statistics Canada is engaged in the "Information System for Science and Technology Project" to develop useful indicators of activity and a framework to tie them together into a coherent picture of science and technology (S&T) in Canada. The working papers series is used to publish results of the different initiatives conducted within this project. The data are related to the activities, linkages and outcomes of S&T. Several key areas are covered such as: innovation, technology diffusion, human resources in S&T and interrelations between different actors involved in S&T. This series also presents data tabulations taken from regular surveys on research and development (R&D) and S&T and made possible by the project.

  • Journals and periodicals: 88-522-X
    Description:

    The framework described here is intended as a basic operational instrument for systematic development of statistical information respecting the evolution of science and technology and its interactions with the society, the economy and the political system of which it is a part.
