WHO WE ARE

The Health Innovation Initiative (HI2) is a non-profit organisation founded in Montréal in 2017. Our mission is to strengthen health innovation in Canada. We do this by bridging gaps between academia, industry, clinical practice, government, and community. We create training, networking, and collaboration opportunities for post-secondary students and early career professionals in any field related to health innovation.

 

Through our experimental process, we host events that emphasize the value of collaboration across traditional boundaries while providing the platform to do so. Interdisciplinary problem solving and effective knowledge translation methods are core elements of these experiments.
