McMaster Innovation Showcase
November 10, 2016 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm
The McMaster Innovation Showcase demonstrates the role that McMaster plays in translating research into the community through entrepreneurship and commercialization. In addition to showcasing new and exciting technologies developed by students and faculty members of McMaster, this year’s Innovation Showcase brings together researchers, industry, and successful entrepreneurs. Our focus is to encourage students, post-docs, and new faculty to pursue entrepreneurship, industry experience, and commercialization. By bridging the academic and commercial sectors, we can create dialogue that will shape our innovation culture towards economic and social prosperity.

Miovision is helping municipalities update outdated traffic management systems and providing solutions to help reduce gridlock on a global scale.
