More R&D Support
In its mineral strategy, the government emphasizes the importance of supporting research and innovation and proposes to implement measures to achieve this aim. A meeting was held on Wednesday, January 20, 2010 at the Delta Hotel in Québec to discuss the best ways for Ministère des Ressources naturelles et de la Faune to provide support for R&D and innovation in the mining industry.
