Every year, ORION is thrilled to host and sponsor conferences, summits, forums, and other events. They give researchers, educators and innovators from across the province the opportunity to share insights and ideas while building relationships that strengthen Ontario’s innovation community. Events like these are just one more way ORION empowers innovation.

Think 2017, May 24

In 2017, ORION was once again proud to host our annual THINK conference. Our flagship event brings innovators together from across our community — IT leaders, researchers, educators, librarians, policy makers, and many others — to learn from each other, discuss new ideas, and share valuable insights.

The theme of 2017’s conference was “Open.” THINK 2017 explored the impact that openness is having on the innovation community, investigating the vitally important questions it raises. What are the advantages of being open? How do we address the inherent security issues? How do we prepare for an open future? And how can digital infrastructure enable us to be more open and collaborative?
