The two-day McMaster Innovation Showcase 09, set for June 18-19, will focus on the ways that McMaster University, Hamilton Health Sciences and St. Joseph's Healthcare can encourage innovation in the Hamilton area.
It will examine various ways local businesses can collaborate with researchers through research contracts, industrial research assistance programs, and sponsored research. In addition, investors, researchers and the public can learn about the research that has the potential to create new jobs in the Hamilton region, and how McMaster is working to make that potential a reality. The showcase also aims to connect researchers with business people and investors who can help commercialize research discoveries.
"In challenging economic times, the McMaster Innovation Showcase demonstrates our ongoing commitment to encouraging economic development in the Hamilton region," says Mo Elbestawi, McMaster's vice-president, research and international affairs. "McMaster wants to help the Hamilton region innovate to retain jobs and build new industries. This event is a key part of our efforts to connect our expertise with local businesses and industries."
