Industry and Community Research Partnerships

Research Innovation Office (RIO)

The RIO supports the commercialization of research outcomes from Memorial. It connects industry to expertise at the university and provides intellectual property education and market reports to Memorial’s members (including MCE, ETP and Genesis). The RIO has access to funds to support proof-of-concept, market validation, patent protection and industry engagement activities for Memorial members.

The Harris Centre

The Leslie Harris Centre of Regional Policy and Development assists in the responsible development of the economy and society of Newfoundland and Labrador and stimulates informed discussion of important provincial issues. The centre supports active community engagement by linking Memorial researchers with groups all over Newfoundland and Labrador through teaching, research and outreach initiatives.
