Marvin Silbert

Sr. Mgr, Canada

In his role as Senior Manager, Chemical and Manufacturing, Marvin Silbert has successfully prepared several hundred SR&ED eligibility claims covering the development of a wide range of products and processes developed within the Canadian industrial sector. His clients have varied from very small to very large with some of the more exotic projects now operating on the International Space Station and down a few thousand metres into the ground.

Marvin initially, he pursued an academic career, but decided to move to industry and joined Ontario Hydro’s nuclear operations. He has successfully undertaken a number of projects that, although they took place before the inception for CRA’s SR&ED program, would have met all the criteria for fundamental scientific research (SR) and industrial process development (ED).

Marvin took that experience and became an independent consultant providing water-treatment optimization and troubleshooting services as well as training to a wide spectrum of industrial clients in Canada and the USA. He began working with Revenue Canada’s SR&ED program shortly after it was introduced and joined ResDev in 2002. While working with ResDev, he has remained involved with industry by providing technical advice to a number of major industrial plants in Canada along with a number of training courses in British Columbia, California, Dubai and Kuwait.
