Professor Margaret Dalziel is presenting a paper on measuring the impact of government investments in research and innovation at the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences in Waterloo, Ontario. The study is slated for publication in the June issue of Optimum Online, a joint initiative of the Centre on Governance, University of Ottawa, and The Summit Group.
Dalziel conducted a systematic review of the state of knowledge and international best practices with Telfer graduate students Mimosa Zhao and Tanita Noor Tahmina and Council of Canadian Academies researcher Joe Rowsell. Their work – supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) and Industry Canada – provides government policy makers and research managers with an appreciation of the scope, findings, and value of the academic literature and helps facilitate evidence-based policymaking.
