What about innovation at McGill?

These days, innovation and entrepreneurship are buzz words at McGill.  Practically speaking what does that mean for us?  Innovation, inventions, patents, copyrights, licenses, spinoffs are words that we often hear or see on grants or invoices, but what do they mean?  We propose to define these terms and show their importance in translating the results of research ongoing in the McGill labs into something more tangible that can eventually have a positive impact on our lives.  We will also have a few researchers talking to us about the time and efforts required to bring their inventions to market.

*Created in 2013, McGill Innovation Week is a an opportunity to raise awareness regarding McGill’s activities surrounding innovation and entrepreneurship on campus and in the Quartier de l’Innovation as well as to reach out to various communities, student associations and internal stakeholders. Under the leadership of the Innovation in Practice Team, Office of Innovation and Partnership, Research & International Relations, and in collaboration with the Office of External Relations, McGill Innovation Week is a chance to showcase innovation as an economic driver and demonstrate how people can work together to create new and exciting things.  McGill Innovation Week 2015 will be held between November 15th and 20th and promises more engaging and student-led events than ever before. A large number of this year’s participating groups have also decided to focus their events on issues related to innovation in education or learning and to entrepreneurship. This gives MIW 2015 a distinctively important feeling, empowering students to help shape their educational experiences and thereby placing them at the vanguard of their own knowledge and understanding.
