12:45   CRIAQ - Sofiane Benyouci
Collaborative innovation: issues, challenges and winning practices, the example of aerospace
The Consortium for Research and Innovation in Aerospace in Quebec (CRIAQ) and the Consortium for Aerospace Research and Innovation in Canada (CARIC) are organizations whose missions are to facilitate collaboration of researchers from the aerospace industry, academia and research centres, and to launch initiatives whose primary purpose is to promote responsive, impactful R&D. This lecture will insist on the distinctive characteristics of these models and their impact on Quebec and Canada’s aerospace innovation culture. The lecture will also emphasize on the issues, importance and challenges of industrial cluster in collaborative innovation to accelerate the introduction of enabling and disruptive technologies, particularly in SMEs.

13:00  Canadian Space Agency - Isabelle Marcil
Science experiments on board the ISS and how they can improve our quality of life on Earth
Isabelle Marcil will talk about Canadian science taking place on the International Space Station (ISS), which is first and foremost a large orbiting research laboratory. She will give an overview of Canadian astronaut David Saint-Jacques’ upcoming mission and the health science experiments he will be conducting aboard the ISS. She will also discuss how space is hard on the human body and how studying the way our body changes in space can help us understand the impacts of reduced levels of physical activity and issues that affect older populations on Earth.

Isabelle Marcil parlera des expériences scientifiques canadiennes menées à bord de la Station spatiale internationale. Elle donnera un aperçu de la prochaine mission de l’astronaute canadien David Saint-Jacques à bord de ce laboratoire orbital et des expériences qu’il y réalisera. Son exposé portera aussi sur les effets néfastes de l’espace sur le corps humain et sur les changements qu’ils lui font subir, dont l’étude permet de comprendre les conséquences sur la santé de la sédentarité et les problèmes de santé des aînés sur Terre.
