    Description:

    This release provides data on the research and development activities of the private non-profit sector. Although the contribution of this sector to the national research and development effort is small in dollar terms, (approximately 0.6% of the total research and development performed in Canada for 2001) its impact, particularly in the university and hospital sectors, is significant.

    Description:

    A theoretical link between innovation and economic growth has been contemplated since the late 1700s. Professor Ajay Agrawal discusses the significance of knowledge spillovers, the relation to innovation and growth, and the closely related concept of absorptive capacity. Clearly, the immense complexity of the issue of innovation and economic growth has increased scholarly interest in the topic.

    Description:

    One can argue that every organization that provides goods and services is interested in innovation to maximize its competitiveness. The question is whether the organizational structure (the bureaucracy) as the means to organizational ends is conducive to innovations. This paper discusses Dr. Soma Hewa's insights on some of Max Weber's thoughts to understanding the role of innovation in organizations.

    Description:

    Statistics Canada conducted the Survey of Innovation 1999 in the fall of 1999. It surveyed manufacturing and was the first survey to study innovation in selected natural resource industries. This publication is part of a series of working papers based largely on the Survey of Innovation 1999. It uses a systems approach to understanding innovation in the mineral sector with a focus on metal ore mining. It also describes a model for the mineral sector system. Descriptive statistics and statistical tables present data for some of the industries included in the system including an analysis of the type of innovation and the innovative activities of mining firms. The publication examines information sources for innovation, objectives of innovation, and firm success factors. Data from the Survey of Electronic Commerce and Technology 2000 are used to explore how improved technologies were introduced to firms.

    Description:

    The statistics in this bulletin are derived from the 2000 survey of industrial research and development activities in Canada, which covers firms spending a million dollars or more on the performance or funding of research and development in Canada, and from the administrative data of the Canada Customs and Revenue Agency (CCRA) for firms which spend less than a million dollars on the performance or funding of research and development in Canada. The use of CCRA data results in a small understatement in total figures for the most recent years reported.

    Description:

    Statistics Canada's annual Economic Conference provides a forum for the exchange of empirical research among business, government, research and labour communities. The conference is also a means to promote economic and socio-economic analyses while subjecting existing data to critical assessment as part of an ongoing process of statistical development and review. This year's theme was Innovation in an Evolving Economy. At the May 6-7, 2002 conference there were 12 presentations, based directly on the analysis of Science, Innovation and Electronic Information Division (SIEID) data. These presentations were given by SIEID analysts, by Statistics Canada analysts in other groups, by facilitated access researchers and by analysts using published or commissioned estimates.
