President's Faculty Lecture: Dr. Elicia Maine

Turning Invention into Innovation: Strategies for Scientist-Entrepreneurs

Canada has an excellent record in invention, but struggles with innovation.  In particular, scientific inventions of a radical, generic nature, with high potential economic and social value, can languish in the lab because of prolonged uncertainty and high commercialization costs.  Drawing on her research in the advanced materials, nanotech, biotech, and clean tech sectors, Professor Maine will offer commercialization strategies for scientist-entrepreneurs.

Elicia Maine is an Associate Professor at SFU’s Beedie School of Business and is currently Director of an innovative graduate certificate program in Science & Technology Commercialization. Specializing in technological innovation and entrepreneurship, Dr. Maine has used her expertise at home and abroad to guide innovation policy and strategy and to mentor emerging talent. A founding coordinator for New Ventures BC, Dr. Maine holds a PhD in Technology Management from Cambridge University and master’s degrees in Technology & Policy and Materials Engineering from MIT.
