To quote a famous slogan, “A mind is a terrible thing to waste”. Here in Ontario, there is a growing pool of brilliant, highly qualified neuroscientists whose potential would be largely untapped without the right catalyst.

There is a genuine need for training programs that can harness the talents of these highly qualified personnel. That’s why we’ve created the entrepreneurship and management program focused on helping neuroscientists bridge the gap between academia and industries operating beyond the bench. The aim of this initiative is to:

  • Build capacity for a knowledge-based economy in Ontario.
  • Create expertise in a determined area of need in Ontario: the management of neuroscience research, knowledge translation, and commercialization of neuroscience.
  • Increase employment options for neuroscientists – qualifying them for high-quality jobs, that contribute to a knowledge-based economy.

By building the translational skill set of scientific human capital, we can build the entrepreneurship capacity and management talent in Ontario.
