At their core, Innovation Ambassadors are about sharing – sharing of ideas, of guidance, of understanding, of expertise, of a particular insight into entrepreneurship unique to Western.
This event, hosted by the Innovation Ambassadors, will promote engagement with our community by showcasing Western’s research innovation and its impact on our society.
The event will include a keynote presentation by neuroscientist and best-selling author Adrian Owen. Following the keynote there will be three panel discussions with researchers, industry professionals and entrepreneurs on how they adapted to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our Innovation Ambassadors are self-identified researchers from across campus who have experience and expertise in entrepreneurship, commercialization or knowledge mobilization. They are charged with a mission to connect great ideas from their areas into the ecosystem. Innovation Ambassadors are an essential component of the Western Entrepreneurship ecosystem. Through their work in faculties and departments across campus, they are dedicated to developing and supporting an innovative mindset at Western.
