Memorial University is embarking on an innovation strategy process that intends to cover many facets of innovation, including innovation programming, social and cultural innovation, entrepreneurship and innovation-driven research.
Innovation is knowledge that is captured, adapted and used to create new value (e.g. new products, new services, new processes, new practices and policies).
Embarking on an innovation strategy planning process is the next step to the university’s commitment to promoting the advancement of innovation in the province. It is also an acknowledgment that an innovative culture at Memorial is an essential catalyst for social and economic development and global competitiveness.
This planning reflects Memorial’s response to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, particularly goal #9: Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation.
Dr. Neil Bose, vice-president (research), and Dr. Paula Mendonça, director of innovation and entrepreneurship, are leading the process.
