Innovation Task Force

The University of Alberta has been driving innovation for more than 100 years. It is what we do. It is who we are. We push the boundaries of knowledge and create the future through our research, teaching and innovation-the outcomes of which have helped shape our world and improve lives, at home and around the world.

While innovation is core to our research and education mandate, it has become a top priority for many of our stakeholders, including government, funders, students, next-generation researchers, the public and many of our partners. 

To better harness the university's intellectual powers and transform our research-driven ideas and discoveries into social and economic impacts, the vice‐president (research and innovation) struck a task force to examine the university's broad innovation ecosystem.
