In partnership with Université du Québec à Montréal, University of Alberta and University of New Mexico
Our team is working closely with 5 companies, 5 universities and 7 government bodies and non-profits to understand the inhibitors and facilitators to sustainability-oriented innovation in business. Our ambition is to move Canada’s innovation agenda, so that all corporate innovations create shared value – value for business and society simultaneously. In Canada, US$27.6B is spent each year on research and development. Imagine if all innovations created value for business and society, not just for business.
The project is led by Tima Bansal (project lead, Ivey Business School), Joel Gehman (co-investigator, University of Alberta), Marie-France Turcotte (co-investigator, Université du Québec à Montréal) and Garima Sharma (co-investigator, University of New Mexico).
“In an age when disruptions are broader, deeper and arriving faster than we have previously experienced, it is more important than ever for business to innovate to the benefit of society. This International Green Gown Award would celebrate the importance of creating shared value through corporate innovation.”
