Indigenous and Northern Affairs committee  I'm going to be very efficient.

February 19th, 2019Committee meeting

Dr. Ted Hewitt

Indigenous and Northern Affairs committee  Thank you for the invitation to be here. I'm here with my colleagues, Ursula Gobel and Manon Tremblay, from SSHRC. I want to begin, as you did, by recognizing and acknowledging our presence on the unceded territory of the Algonquin people. As president of the Social Sciences

February 19th, 2019Committee meeting

Dr. Ted Hewitt

Industry committee  I would generally agree. As I said earlier, it's really important to take a broader view of this, because the impacts and the results are often not anticipated. As was mentioned earlier, we just have to keep the pipeline going—invest in the best minds and see what happens. It may

Industry committee  I would just respond as well that this will entail a major culture shift, because the model in place now is a traditional model for the most part. I should mention as well that there is lots of research and development and knowledge transfer that does not involve technology. This

Dr. Ted Hewitt

Industry committee  I would say there are multiple entities. We talked about IRAP and certainly the technology access centres and so forth. A lot of this will depend on the ability of a business or a company to, in the first place, identify opportunity. That's partly an educational activity, and i

June 20th, 2017Committee meeting

Dr. Ted Hewitt

Industry committee  We are responsible for agencies that fund primarily fundamental research or earlier-stage research. We haven't worked directly with the organizations or agencies that will deliver that program. At face value, from my perspective and given my university experience, this will be a

June 20th, 2017Committee meeting

Dr. Ted Hewitt

Industry committee  I'm going to turn it over to Bert, but I can tell you that our agency has funded research on precisely these questions on rural access, services, and infrastructure. So, if you like, I could take that as homework, and we could dig out some material for you.

June 20th, 2017Committee meeting

Dr. Ted Hewitt

Industry committee  I think that makes sense and it's an amazing idea. I was out not that long ago at Red River College, so I'm well aware of the capacity to undertake work there in many fields. I was looking at a program of early childhood education, which is now being exported globally. The metho

June 20th, 2017Committee meeting

Dr. Ted Hewitt

Industry committee  I think part of it has to be creating a sense of collaboration in that community, because the options out there at the municipal, provincial, and federal level are mind-boggling. The only other thing I would say is that in this repository of misfit toys, some are very cool. I've

June 20th, 2017Committee meeting

Dr. Ted Hewitt

Industry committee  That's not to mention as well that CFI, the Canada Foundation for Innovation, does have a college infrastructure program. They should be talking to them for sure.

Dr. Ted Hewitt

Industry committee  Context is really important.

June 20th, 2017Committee meeting

Dr. Ted Hewitt

Industry committee  Bert spoke to this very well, and the fact is that not everything needs to be conceived as product development technology transfer. Working together produces amazing results sometimes when there's no obvious IP. I've seen it more than once. I've seen a $25,000 project at a major

June 20th, 2017Committee meeting

Dr. Ted Hewitt

Industry committee  My understanding was that you were also asking about where the money goes, in terms of where the investments go. Is that correct?
