INRS Launches Short Program in Scientific Management and Entrepreneurship

Canada NewsWire

The research institution expands its training options with a new microprogram on managing scientific businesses.

LAVAL, QC, April 16, 2024 /CNW/ - Starting in the fall of 2024, the Institut national de la recherche scientifique (INRS) will be offering a short master's program in management and research-based entrepreneurial development.

The training will prepare students to take on various management duties, whether they are joining the workforce or starting their own businesses.

As such, this unique new program is the perfect complement to a scientific education.

"By adding this program, INRS is responding to a concrete need of up-and-coming scientists, equipping them to combine their passion for science with the realities of management in the workplace and the entrepreneurial sphere," says Philippe-Edwin Bélanger, Director of Graduate Studies and Student Success at INRS. 

The three courses in the microprogram will cover management, legalities, human resources and budget management, and the analysis of business opportunities. Together, they will equip learners to play a central role in R&D management, laboratory management, or corporate general management.

Those wishing to build their own business will learn how to transform scientific and theoretical ideas into products, services, and social innovations. They will also acquire an in-depth understanding of business design and creation in the research field.

Based out of the Armand-Frappier Santé Biotechnologie Research Centre, this training program will encourage the commercialization of certain discoveries made by INRS laboratory research teams, within a rigorous ethical framework.

Registration is open until June 1 for admission in the fall of 2024. This program was developed in collaboration with Collège Montmorency.
