Professors Mistrale Goudreau (with Professor Margaret Ann Wilkinson)and Florian Martin-Bariteau have received funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) Connection Grants Program for the organisation of the workshop of industrial property policy and a Canada 150 symposium on digital citizenship.
Professor Mistrale Goudreau, a membre of the Centre, is the primary investigator on an event entitled “Nouveaux paradigmes en propriété industrielle”, to be co-organized with Professor Margaret Ann Wilkinson of the University of Western Ontario, and Professor Florian Martin-Bariteau, Director of the Centre.
They will convene a public conference and workshop that will bring together Canadian academics specializing in intellectual property to explore tensions between industrial property and access to essential goods and services. The papers resulting from the public event and workshop will be published in an open access format.
Professor Florian Martin-Bariteau is also a co-investigator on a Connexion Grant for a Symposium entitled “Canada 150: Connected Canada" to be organized with professors Elizabeth Dubois, principal investigator and of uOttawa’s Department of Communication, Jon Penney, Dalhousie University, and Alfred Hermida, University of British Columbia.
Marking the Nation’s sesquicentennial, this day-and-a-half long conference will explore what it means to be a digital citizen in Canada today and resulting social, cultural and technological implications for Canada’s institutions, policies and citizens. The event will bring together academics, students, policy makers and civil society members in order to build and strengthen networks, establish a research agenda and disseminate knowledge to a broad audience of those interested in public policy and law in a digital era. In addition to leveraging connections through the CLTS, the event will reach out to key audiences identified from government bodies such as the Treasury Board Secretariat to civil society groups such as Fulbright Canada and the Public Policy Forum.
SSHRC Connection Grants support events and outreach activities geared toward short-term, targeted knowledge mobilization initiatives. These events and activities represent opportunities to exchange knowledge and to engage with Canadian research issues in the social sciences and humanities.
Congratulations to Professors Goudreau and Martin-Bariteau!
