Webinar Technical 4POINT0 | Technology adoption and impact on firm performance

Webinar Technical 4POINT0

Created in 2011 as the Partnership on Opening Innovation in New Technologies (POINT), the partnership evolved to the Partnership for the Organization of Innovation (4POINT0) in 2017. The team brings together professors from Canadian, American, French, Italian and English universities, in addition to partners from different backgrounds: governments, private companies, innovation intermediaries, associations, etc. Team members study innovative collaborative ecosystems through multidisciplinary and cross-sectoral approaches. 

As a result of the meetings and research conducted in the early years, we noted the importance and identified challenges related to Canada’s innovation ecosystems. With this in mind, the team has recently reoriented itself towards the « organization » of innovation within ecosystems made up of a variety of players playing a leading role in technological development 

With this in mind, 4POINT0 is organizing technical points to explore new methods of data analysis. This Webinar will focus on the topic of advanced technologies and their impact on the innovation performance of companies. There will be two researchers from 4POINT0 who will present their analyzes by association rules performed on two different databases: Aberdeen and Statistics Canada’s Survey of Advanced Technologies (SAT) 2014.
