Professors Rick Delbridge and Kevin Morgan visited Canada to explore the changing role of universities and cities in urban innovation networks.
The cities of Ottawa and Toronto are both trying to develop ’urban innovation platforms’, which involves a variety of organisations working together to create a local ‘innovation ecosystem’.
An innovation ecosystem describes the large number and diverse nature of participants and resources that are necessary for innovation.
