February 18, 2002

Ottawa, February 18, 2002…Dr. David W. Strangway, President and CEO of the Canada Foundation for Innovation, today announced the launch of a new Internet-based magazine dedicated to Canadian research. Entitled Innovation Canada, the new e-zine features stories about some of the most cutting-edge research that is taking place in universities and research institutions across the country.

“The Internet offers a tremendous opportunity to showcase—both at home and internationally—some of the best research found in Canada,” said Dr. Strangway. “Helping raise public awareness for research and innovation is a key part of our commitment to Canadians.”

The premiere issue features research projects on futuristic concert halls and recording studios as well as on winemaking, flu transmission and babies language learning abilities. A section on Canada’s “Young Innovators” introduces an 18-year old from Saskatoon who has represented Canada at UNESCO's Conference on the Environment in Paris.
