Memorial University Seeking Feedback From Stakeholders On Its DRAFT Innovation Strategy

NOTE: This opportunity has expired or is an event which has already taken place.

Dr. Richard Marceau, vice-president (research), is releasing a draft of Memorial’s new Innovation Strategy for feedback from all Memorial university campuses and external stakeholders. The deadline to provide feedback during the consultation phase is Wednesday, July 22, at 5 p.m.

The Innovation Strategy is intended to guide Memorial in creating what it hopes to be one of the most progressive innovation environments in Canada. It is supported by Memorial’s vision to “be one of the most distinguished public universities in Canada and beyond, and … fulfill its special obligation to the people of Newfoundland and Labrador.”

The development of the Innovation Strategy began in September 2014, and was initiated by Dr. Marceau. Rick Meaney, director, Department of Technical Services, was appointed to manage the development of the plan in partnership with Dr. Ray Gosine, vice-president (research) pro tempore from October 2014 to March 2015. The process aimed to examine Memorial’s performance on innovation-related outcomes and to develop a supporting strategy.

During consultations, stakeholders clearly articulated a desire for Memorial to increase its contributions towards advancing the economy of the province of Newfoundland and Labrador. To accomplish this, a draft document has been prepared recommending that Memorial implement a detailed action plan aiming to:

  • Foster a culture of innovation,
  • Revise and implement its policies in support of innovation,
  • Establish responsive business structures and processes, and
  • Ensure adequate oversight and guidance of its innovation structures and processes.

Feedback will be accepted in confidence until Wednesday, July 22, via e-mail vp.research@mun.ca, or internal mail, Office of the Vice-President (Research), A-2021, St. John’s campus.
