Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED) has asked the Council of the Canadian Academies (CCA) to undertake an expert panel report assessment on the current state of science and technology (S&T), and industrial research and development (IR&D) in Canada. This assessment will be the third edition in the State of S&T and Industrial R&D assessment series.
