Government Policies to Encourage University-Business Research Collaboration in Canada: Lessons from the US, the UK and Australia
This report reviews findings from the research literature on motivations for, barriers to, and determinants of university-business (U-B) research collaboration. It examines how U-B research collaboration is measured and Canada‘s international ranking. It describes public policy measures for encouraging U-B research collaboration in Canada and three reference countries – the US, the UK and Australia. Drawing on the results of this work, the report provides recommendations on how Canadian governments can strengthen their role and effectiveness as advocates, enablers, funders and rule-makers for U-B research collaboration.
