The 2021 Innovation Networks Annual Symposium is a free event that all members of the Defence and Security Community, including stakeholders in defence innovation, are encouraged to attend.
All of the registered guests should view the video presentations of each Micro-net in advance of the Symposium to learn about research to date and prepare their questions for the live Q and A session. Guests will have the ability to submit questions to each Micro-net by either using the link provided on the video page or submit questions on the day of the live event.
Please note that the videos will not be shared during the live event.
The Symposium is a unique opportunity for Micro-nets to present their research to the Defence Community, the academic community, and other like-minded stakeholders. The goal of this event is to encourage collaboration between participants, sharing of knowledge, creation of relationships, and to promote the development of larger Innovation Networks in these fields.
Can I ask questions in advance about the videos?
Individuals registered for the event are encouraged to view the project videos in advance of the live event and submit questions by using the link provided within the open video viewer, just under the video. Questions will be provided to the Micro-net and answered on the day of the event should the time permit.
How do I join the live event?
All registered guests will be sent an email confirmation with the link to join the event. A reminder email will also be sent 24 hours prior to the start time of the event. This email will also contain the link to join the live event. Please note that this event will be held on Zoom.
Innovation Networks’ first two Calls for Proposals supported the creation of Micro-nets; smaller networks that perform research on one or more aspects of a larger Innovation Challenge. With time, these Micro-nets, along with other networks/participants, will grow and combine to form larger sustainable national Innovation Networks dedicated to further research on a particular Innovation Challenge.
By creating Innovation Networks, the IDEaS Program is fostering the development of a critical mass of researchers, highly qualified personnel, and expertise within the Canadian innovation community!
