The Office of Innovation, Partnerships and Economic Development (IPED) proudly sponsors the Lakehead Innovation Awards. Nominations for these awards open in November of each year and presented during the annual Research & Innovation Week celebrations.  

Lakehead University Innovation Award:  The Lakehead University Innovation Award is designed to recognize the efforts of employees of Lakehead University who transform research results into products and/or services. This award acknowledges two methods of research transformation: transfer of knowledge to business or industry through research collaborations; and creation of new products or services through the disclosure of an invention to the Office of Innovation, Partnerships and Economic Development (IPED).

Lakehead University Student Innovation Award:  The Lakehead University Student Innovation Award honours students who have demonstrated an entrepreneurial spirit by identifying ways in which their ideas can be developed into products or services. The award is expected to foster an appreciation of real-world applications of research. Lakehead will recognize up to two students per year, one at the graduate level and one at the undergraduate level. This award carries a monetary value.

Lakehead University Ingenuity Award:  The Lakehead University Ingenuity Award honours a member of Lakehead University’s Community (staff, faculty, student) who has exhibited an entrepreneurial spirit by identifying ways in which their ideas can be developed into problem solving solutions. The award is expected to showcase creative thought and contribute to Ingenuity’s vision of fostering an entrepreneurial culture on campus. This award carries a monetary value.

We encourage all members of the Lakehead University community to nominate a Faculty, Staff, or student(s) for these awards.  Self nominations are welcome. For more information about these awards call or email Kelly Fettes at 343-8871 or kafettes@lakeheadu.ca.
