Welcome to Innovation and Partnerships at McGill

Innovation and Partnerships is the primary resource at McGill for bringing researchers and industry partners together for the generation of knowledge and technologies.

Our mission is to enhance McGill University’s local, regional, and global impact. Through partnerships, we create viable routes for translating research and discoveries into products, processes, and services to benefit society.

Our vision is to increase collaborations between McGill researchers and industry, to transform more of McGill’s research into market-ready inventions and to be recognized as a leader in innovation and entrepreneurship.

We accomplish these goals always in conjunction with our values which are as follows: 

  • We believe that knowledge gained through research should be freely disseminated to promote collaboration and the advancement of ideas (as reflected in our Global Access Principles)
  • We strive to provide high-quality service to the McGill research community and industry partners, while ensuring alignment with the mission of the University
  • We consider all forms of diversity an integral part of our office which reflects not only our research community, but also the research domains that we support
