Speaking: Creating Digital Opportunity Partnership Conference

The Creating Digital Opportunity partnership hosts its 5th Annual Partnership Network Conference in Vancouver this week and our CEO Adam Froman is participating in a panel presentation at the event.

Adam is taking part in a discussion focusing on the policy implications of the CDO’s research and the competitiveness of Canada’s digital industry.

He will be joined by Pierre Therrien, Director, Market Structure and Framework Policy Analysis at Innovation, Science and Economic Development (formerly Industry Canada); Damian Dupuy, Manager of Strategic Policy with the Ministries of Economic Development, Employment and Infrastructure, and Research and Innovation; and Michael Turner, VP, Systems Strategies, Wesley Clover.

Founded by Dr. David A. Wolfe, Co-Director of the Innovation Policy Lab at the Munk School of Global Affairs, Creating Digital Opportunity is a national research partnership funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) and based at the Innovation Policy Lab.

The mission of the project is to identify strengths in current and emerging digital sectors, by examining the place of Canadian corporations, products and services in the global economy. The project is also investigating the extent to which digital technologies are being adopted and diffused across a wide range of other sectors—from advanced manufacturing to natural resources and business services – which are crucial for the future competitiveness of the Canadian economy.

In September 2014, Delvinia announced the company was among a group of 13 partner organizations and 16 universities taking part in the CDO partnership.

The 5th Annual conference takes place in Vancouver from Wednesday to Friday. For more information about the CDO partnership, you can read its latest report here: Creating Digital Opportunity for Canada.
