    Description:

    The last decade of the Innovation Analysis Bulletin (IAB) tells the story of the evolution of the Science, Innovation and Electronic Information Division (SIEID) and its precursor, the Science and Technology Redesign Project. This evolution brings all the measurement and analysis activities together in an integrated approach to understanding technological and related organizational change. This includes measurement of research and development resources allocated to the formal generation of knowledge (research and development); the use and commercialization of intellectual property of universities, government laboratories and businesses; the activity of innovation; and the adoption and use of advanced manufacturing technologies, biotechnologies, information communication technologies (ICTs), knowledge management practices, nanotechnologies, and emerging technologies.

    Description:

    Using data from the Survey of Innovation 2005, this article will examine the use of patents by Canadian manufacturing plants. Survey findings establish that plants use strategic methods more than patents for intellectual property protection. Patent use varies both by how big the plant is and whether it is innovative or non-innovative. In addition, the use of patents by Canadian manufacturing plants varies by the subsector in which they are classified.

    Statistics Canada is engaged in a project "Information System for Science and Technology" which purpose is 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 produced 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 important data tabulations taken from regular surveys on R&D and S&T and made possible because of the existing Project.
