What you may not know about China’s innovation system

About the event

On January 30, at 12:00 PM, the ISSP was delighted to host Margaret McCuaig-Johnston, Senior Fellow of the ISSP, University of Ottawa.

For decades, Canadians have been collaborating with Chinese counterparts in science and technology, and Canadian researchers have helped build the ‘new China’ through scientific collaborations, especially in medical and agricultural research. At the same time, the Chinese have made massive investments of their own in R&D— more than US$350 billion annually. How should Canada navigate existing diplomatic tensions and show China that its harmful actions against Canada have negative consequences for itself, while continuing to take advantage of the opportunities presented by an ascendant China, without jeopardizing Canadian IP?
