The Budget indicates that the Federal Government is proposing to launch a competition to create “innovation superclusters” that will have access to significant government funding to develop innovations in various areas including clean technology and health/bio sciences. While this appears to be directed towards creating new economic growth opportunities for Canadian businesses and will ultimately be a business-led initiative, the clusters will consist of partnerships between organizations. Given the research and innovation focus, this new measure will interest universities, hospitals, and other research-focused organizations.
