4POINT0 brings together highly complementary expertise and multiple levels of analysis to break the disciplinary and sectoral silos: universities, research centers, innovation intermediaries, SMEs, large firms, industry associations, and governments. Several partners currently act as the conveners of their ecosystems, and hence have a vested interest in co-creating knowledge and understanding across various innovative sectors.
The privileged partnership approach is driven by the development of collectively beneficial links between all partners and participants, where the co-production of knowledge aims to collectively start tackling the so-called “Canadian innovation paradox”. The active participation of partners will be called upon at all stages of the research process to co-create knowledge and to ensure its adoption. Research projects are co-developed with academics, which is helping the researchers identify and focus on the various challenges faced by 4POINT0 partners in their own ecosystems.
