Many people talk about the contribution that Memorial University makes to the Newfoundland and Labrador economy through knowledge and technology transfer. But how does it actually work? Dr. Peter Warrian of the University of Toronto will speak about his recent studies of two MUN research institutions, C-CORE and the Marine Institute.

Memorial University’s stated goal of contributing to the regional innovation ecosystem is both richer and more complex than we may think.

Dr. Peter Warrian is a Distinguished Research Fellow at the Innovation Policy Lab, Munk School of Global Affairs, University of Toronto. He is Canada’s leading academic expert on the steel industry.
