Canada’s Innovation Strategy acknowledges that, "To succeed in the global, knowledge-based economy, where highly skilled people are more mobile than ever before, a country must produce, attract and retain a critical mass of well-educated and well-trained people." At the New Media Innovation Centre (NewMIC) we have an innovative model of industry-academia-government collaborative research and development that aims to do just this. By training a new generation of uniquely skilled new media researchers, attracting high-level research talent to Canada and exposing industry professionals to new ideas and technologies, NewMIC will help to position Western Canada as an international hub for the new media industry.
