Innovation Workshop Series

Building our innovation capacity for the high tech economy.

The Innovation Workshop Series is a step toward establishing the Faculty of Science as an innovation hub to feed into the Alberta and Canadian high tech economy. The program aims to create connections and, ultimately, funded collaborative research projects between our colleagues and industry.

The workshops: connect researchers at academic institutions with potential industry partners; provide opportunities for industry to work more closely with academic institutions in Alberta through internships, shared research, and partnerships; and highlight and develop funding opportunities between researchers and industry partners.
