Innovation for all

McGill University is committed to innovation. In our view, innovation must serve the best interests of all society, and we believe that disseminating research findings to benefit others is more important than generating revenue. We also recognize that innovation can come from all members of the University, which is why we are pursuing a “distributed, but integrated” model where innovation resources are available to all stakeholders across campus, while at the same time ensuring that all such activities are subject to due diligence and accountability.
