Dr. Kimiz Dalkir of the McGill School of Information Studies (SIS) has been selected as a leader in the development of the Quartier de l’Innovation’s “Montreal Creativity Hub.”
McGill University, École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS), and École des Hautes Études commerciales de Montréal (HEC Montréal) are drawing upon the expertise of three professors who specialize in creativity and innovation management, including Dr. Dalkir, to develop the Hub along with their doctoral students. Prof. Mickaël Gardoni of ETS and Prof. Patrick Cohendet of HEC are the other two professors involved.
The Quartier de l’Innovation’s Creativity Hub will serve as a central node around which professionals, academics, citizens, organizations and companies will coalesce around idea-generation, idea management, and innovation, while providing opportunities to study the initial stages of the creative process. The project is designed to encourage cross-pollination of creative ideas, positioning Montreal as a world-renowned ecosystem of innovation.
