Office of Partnerships and Innovation

Build Business

The Office of Partnerships and Innovation adds value to industrial-academic collaborations above and beyond our roles in cultivating R&D projects, and commercializing Queen's technologies. We use our extensive network of internal and external innovators to help clients identify suppliers, operating talent, co-investigators, business developers, and investors required to bring good ideas to life. We make extensive use of our formal and informal partnerships with local agencies and programs that are dedicated to building business success.

  • Canada Accelerator and Incubator Program
  • GreenCentre Canada
