New Emerging Technologies and Innovation Management Laboratory
Professor Jonathan Linton was awarded a $59,000 grant from the CFI-ORF Leader’s Opportunity Fund (Canadian Foundation for Innovation – Ontario Research Fund) for his new Emerging Technologies and Innovation Management (ETIM) Laboratory.
The ability to manage emerging technologies is critical to the future health of companies, organizations and the entire Canadian economy. At the University of Ottawa’s new Emerging Technologies and Innovation Management (ETIM) Laboratory, researchers will use cutting-edge modeling and statistical software in a collaborative multidisciplinary environment to deal with the complex problem of determining how innovations can be used most effectively. This research will lead to the development of new tools to support decision making and policy planning, and will identify the best techniques that businesses and organizations could use to make the most of innovations as they are developed.
