    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    This paper presents estimates of intangible investment in Canada for the purpose of innovation, advertising and resource extraction. It first expands upon work by Beckstead and Gellatly (2003), Baldwin and Hanel (2003), Beckstead and Gellatly (2003), Beckstead and Vinodrai (2003) and Baldwin and Beckstead (2003) who argue that the scope of innovative activity extends beyond research and development (R&D) as defined by the Frascati Manual. It extends the definition of innovative activities to include all scientific and engineering expenditures - regardless of whether they are market-based or produced with a firm. The paper also considers expenditures on intangible items such as brands or resource exploration.

    The paper contributes to the existing literature by creating intangible investment estimates (science and engineering knowledge, advertising, mineral exploration by industry) using Statistics Canada's high quality and internally consistent databases. It produces estimates that accord with other intangibles studies (Corrado, Hulten and Sichel 2005, 2006; Jalava, Ahmavarra and Alanen 2007) and shows that traditional R&D type investment estimates account for about a quarter of intangible science and engineering investments.

    Description:

    Held in Ottawa, Canada, in September 2006, the Blue Sky II Forum examined new areas for indicator development and set a broad agenda for future work on science, technology and innovation (STI) indicators. Emphasis was placed on indicators of outcomes and impacts in order to support monitoring, benchmarking, foresight, and evaluation activities, applied to policies and programs, and their economic and social impacts. As expected the Forum provided ideas and guidance for indicators work in both OECD-member and non-member countries as well as for other international organizations.

    Description:

    Innovative firms cite industry associations as important sources of ideas more frequently than they cite federal government research laboratories or universities according to data from Statistics Canada's 2003 Innovation Survey. We need a better understanding of the contributions and impact of nonprofit innovation enablers such as industry associations, and to achieve that we need to overcome obstacles to identifying them and their contributions in the data. Without this understanding, policy makers may overlook an important class of actual and potential innovation enablers.

    Description:

    For two full days, more than 20 theorists, empiricists and policy developers from North America and Europe discussed innovation from different perspective. They sought common understanding of the issues and consensus on where work on innovation should be going in the medium- and longer-term. This meeting was part of the foresight program of Science, Innovation and Electronic Information Division at Statistics Canada. Many valuable insights were gained as members of different communities of discourse exchanged their knowledge and arrived at common conclusions.

    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:

    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.
