The CANARIE Summit is an annual showcase for trailblazing visionaries from academia, the private sector, and the public service who discuss their transformative work with an intimate gathering of Canada’s research, education and innovation communities.

Engaging plenary sessions led by Canadian and international speakers aim to inspire attendees to learn, discuss, and collaborate on what it takes to make Canada a global leader in data-driven innovation.

Sponsors of the CANARIE Summit are able to strengthen their exposure to and collaboration with Canada’s research, education and innovation communities through extended networking sessions and opportunities that include brand promotion, exhibition, and the introduction of speakers.
