July 22, 2015 – Ottawa, ON
Canada’s associate membership in EUREKA was renewed by John R. McDougall, President of the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) during a ceremony in Lugano, Switzerland earlier this month, giving Canadian innovators access to the international network for market-driven industrial research and development until 2018.
The signing took place July 1st, also marking EUREKA’s 30th anniversary. President McDougall was joined by Her Excellency Jennifer MacIntyre, Canada’s new Ambassador to Switzerland and Liechtenstein and EUREKA senior officials, including Bruno H. Moor, Chairman Delegate of the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Education and Research.
Through the National Research Council (Canada’s EUREKA National Office) and EUREKA, Canadian companies can easily connect with their counterparts (as well as research centres, universities and other innovators) throughout the world as they pursue industrial research and development. These connections enable partners to get their products to market in fast and flexible ways—ahead of the competition.
