Good morning, ladies and gentlemen. Bonjour à tous. Welcome to the 45th meeting of the Standing Committee on Industry, Science and Technology, where we're continuing our study on the state of disruptive technologies.
Thankfully, with just a couple of minutes of getting to know each other, everybody has arrived, so we're grateful for that.
From Ryerson University we have Hossein Rahnama, who is the director of research and innovation. Then we have a small cavalcade of folks from Concordia University: Graham Carr, who is vice-president, research and graduate studies; Vincent Martin, Canada research chair in microbial genomics and engineering, department of biology. I understand there are two areas of focus for you, and I suspect you'll differentiate that in your own remarks. We have Xavier-Henri Hervé, director, District 3 Innovation Centre, and Sylvie Bourassa, executive director, government relations.
I take it the two groups with Concordia will have separate remarks. Is that correct, Mr. Carr?
