100 years of innovation for Canada: NR16-128/2017-PDF

100 ans d’innovation pour le Canada.

“If the stories in this book carry one message, it is that Canadians can innovate, can stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the best in the world and can have an enormous influence when they engage with common purpose. Throughout its 100-year history, NRC has worked with a diversity of collaborators to face challenges and explore the possibilities they present—from economic opportunities to critical, societal needs—all the while focused on the well-being of Canadians. The following pages capture remarkable snapshots from NRC’s rich history, chronicling 100 years of science and innovation across five distinct eras. Many advances are now considered landmarks in Canada’s scientific heritage. Others may be less well known, yet they have all significantly affected the world around us. These stories of NRC’s research and its people reflect the personality, spirit, creativity and determination of a great Canadian treasure"--P. xiii, xv.
