Principal announces Innovation Fund
Principal Tom Williams has created a new fund to encourage innovation to help academic and administration units across campus generate revenue and reduce costs.
The Principal's Innovation Fund will provide seed funding for the best revenue generation or cost reduction ideas emanating from the Queen's community. Proposals are invited from individual faculty members, groups of faculty members, staff members or groups of staff members. Students or groups of students are also encouraged to submit proposals with the written support of a faculty member.
This Fund is being run as a two-year pilot project. Proposals are now being accepted through to April 16, 2011.
It is expected that most approved proposals will be completed within 18 months.
The process of submitting a proposal has been designed to be as straightforward as possible, and detailed instructions and sample forms can be found at www.queensu.ca/principal/funding/innovationfund.html
