Innovation + Partnerships (I+P)

I+P is the portal to collaborative research and innovation with industry and other partners at McGill. From the idea-stage to commercial reality, we facilitate and maximize the economic, social and global impact of research and innovation, and create a culture of engaged scholarship and experiential learning. The I+P Office provides a single point of contact for researchers and trainees seeking industry partners and for companies seeking academic partners. We assist with the development of these relationships, in order to facilitate the creation of innovative research projects and generate open innovation for companies.
