Innovation literacy is a key component of the George Brown College Research and Innovation Office’s Strategic Plan. But what is innovation literacy? It’s the ability to think creatively, evaluate, and apply problem-solving skills to diverse and intangible issues within industrial complexity and multidisciplinary contexts. At George Brown, we believe that fostering innovation literacy is a key advantage of the college experience.
We promote innovation literacy by directly involving students in industry-focused applied research. There is no better way to gain problem-solving, leadership, and entrepreneurship competencies than to work on real world challenges shoulder to shoulder with seasoned professionals under the guidance of experienced faculty. Whether you’re thinking of starting up your own venture, or joining a larger organization, innovation literacy is today’s must-have skill.
