27 Jul 2020 Annual Report
AT HOME WITH NANOCANADA – 2020 ANNUAL REPORT
As we enter a second year of a COVID pandemic, I cannot help but feel a sense of wonder thinking about human resilience and courage in the face of despair and tragedy. At NanoCanada, we have found ways to adapt to the new circumstances—online international missions, new webinar series, partnerships on web events, all of this while wearing our yoga pants and fuzzy slippers! We also learned a lot about writing successful funding proposals while building wonderful relationships with the NGen supercluster, the Nanomedicines Innovation Network, NCE, ISED, Global Affairs’ program officers, and regional economic development program officers. We have been busier than ever and it has been a source of great joy and pride to see so many companies do well, adapting their business models to the needs of the country under pandemic restrictions. I hope that you enjoy reading about it in this report and we look forward to seeing you in-person for our international conference in June 2022!
