Invitation to Participate in McMaster Innovation Showcase
The McMaster Industry Liaison Office would like to take this opportunity to invite you to attend, and optionally present a poster on your research at the upcoming McMaster Innovation Showcase.
Innovation Showcase will take place on November 7 at McMaster Innovation Park and includes several exciting sessions designed to encourage students, post-docs, and faculty to pursue entrepreneurship, industry experience, and commercialization. The programming for this year’s event includes a Keynote address from Heather Chalmers, President and CEO of GE Canada, a discussion panel featuring researchers and successful entrepreneurs addressing current issues around personalized medicine, and presentations from McMaster researchers highlighting current and innovative research throughout the University.
Poster presenters will have an opportunity to network with researchers from all faculties in McMaster, as well as industry and government representatives as they compete for thousands of dollars in prizes recognizing the commercial and social impact of their findings. Although the poster call stipulates that posters should contain information describing commercial or social impact measures, posters from recent competitions without these sections specifically highlighted are welcome. Presenters should be prepared to answer questions from the judges related to these aspects of their research. More details, and the abstract submission form, can be found at milo.mcmaster.ca/showcase
