    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    One of the most commonly used measures of research and development (R&D) performance is the GERD/GDP ratio or total R&D expenditures (Gross Domestic Expenditures on Research and Development) as a percentage of Gross Domestic Product (GDP). How does Canada compare with the other members of the G-7 and the OECD in terms of its GERD/GDP ratio? From 1989 to 1999, Canada reported the highest level of growth among G-7 countries.

    Description:

    In 2001, Statistics Canada conducted the third Survey of Intellectual Property Commercialization in the Higher Education Sector, which was designed to illuminate the overall process of intellectual property (IP) management. Over 100 universities, degree-granting colleges and affiliated research hospitals took part in this voluntary survey. The results show that over 60% of institutions are actively managing (identifying, protecting, promoting and/or commercializing) their IP. Royalties from licensing increased from $18.9 million in 1999 to $44.4 million in 2001. To date, universities and research hospitals have created a total of 680 spin-off companies.

    Description:

    Food processing is one of Canada's largest manufacturing industries, consisting of more than 3,000 establishments. Employing close to 230,000 people in 1998, it boasted a gross domestic product of $15 billion that same year. The relationship between the use of advanced manufacturing technology and firm performance during the 1990s, as measured by growth in labour productivity and growth in market share, is the subject of a recently released Statistics Canada study, which finds that a high-technology orientation is closely associated with success.

    Description:

    Nanotechnology is an emerging technology. Has it reached the point that warrants the development of a comprehensive statistical measurement program? If so, what indicators should be used? Major spending initiatives in nanotechnology investing are currently underway. There is precedence for using developed methods and techniques to address the questions 'who,' 'what,' 'where' and 'why.' Statistics Canada's experience may be invaluable in the development of a nanotechnology statistical program.

    Results show that biotechnology companies in Canada are experiencing rapid growth and that Statistics Canada is now capturing more biotechnology activity. For example, between 1997 and 1999, Canadian biotechnology firms grew in number with core biotechnology firms increasing from 282 firms to 358. They brought in $1.9 billion in biotechnology revenues in 1999, compared with $813 million in 1997; they spent around $827 million on biotechnology research and development in 1999, compared with $494 million in 1997.

    Description:

    Once viewed as weak in research and development (R&D) capabilities, the service sector in Canada is emerging as an increasingly attractive place for foreign-controlled firms to practice R&D. This is a reflection of the increasing technological opportunities and expertise offered by the service sector. Multinational corporations often undertake R&D abroad to acquire new insights or apply the knowledge they already have to foreign markets.
