McMaster Innovation will be recognizing innovators within the McMaster community for their contributions to research and commercialization success with the VPR Innovator Awards under the following categories:

  1. VPR Innovator of the Year Award: provides recognition to individuals who have been involved in research or development efforts over this past year that are already, or will likely become, a product or service in the market or have a positive impact on society.? Recipients have typically taken the research results developed at McMaster, HHS, or SJH through to market, by licensing technology to an existing or new company, contributing to public policy, or other means of knowledge translation that provides economic or social benefit.
  2. VPR Lifetime Innovator Award: celebrates individuals who have a long track record of commercialization and have played a significant role in successfully taking several new innovations or knowledge developed at McMaster, HHS, or SJH to market.

McMaster Innovation would greatly appreciate your support by submitting names to be nominated and/or disseminating this information throughout your Faculty.
