In a National Post story entitled "Government funding revamp will aim to help Canadian businesses reap R&D benefits:, commentator John Ivison is suggesting, based on a speech by the Minister of State for Science and Technology Gary Goodyear, that the federal government will reform the National Research Council and make it the focus of its technology commercialization policies.
The NRC, Ivison suggests, will provide expanded scientific, technical and financial support to businesses through IRAP, its Industrial Research Assistance Program.
