About the program

e2i is for postdocs or research associates and their PIs to get started on the pathway to translating their research into practical solutions. 

The e2i program creates a new pathway for University of Calgary researchers to translate successful research outcomes into practical solutions. e2i fellows will engage in an eight-month experiential innovation curriculum, including mentorship from experienced entrepreneurial faculty members, hands-on workshops, guidance, and a cash allowance. 

 The e2i program prepares participants to develop the skills required to make an impact by evolving their research to pursue research translation and confidently explore the commercial potential of existing research.
