Description: Canada is home to numerous initiatives in surgical robotics technologies including the commercialized work of Synaptive Medical, the research on KidsArm at Sick Kids and investment in innovation centres such as the CSTAR research group.

With its world-leading hubs in health research and innovation, Canada has a unique opportunity to combine key assets for innovation leadership; a highly concentrated health innovation cluster, engineering and technical talent to create the solutions of the future, and a single-payer system to support their larger scale adoption.

The symposium will explore home-grown Canadian innovations, invite technology users and adopters to highlight what opportunities exist for these technologies, and host a discussion on the challenges in bringing these technologies to market, including their validation, adoption, policy innovation and how they will transform the healthcare system and practice.
