University of Guelph Early Career Faculty - Industry Mentorship Program  

Innovation requires many things, including sound research rooted in industry needs; effective working relationships between faculty and industry; and effective technology transfer involving many organizations.  The key objective of our mentorship program is to quickly build positive working relationships between early career faculty and industry. 

Livestock Research Innovation Corporation (LRIC) is a not for profit organization supported by Ontario’s livestock organizations and the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs.  LRIC’s mission is to drive innovation through the livestock value chain. One way to do this is to help early career faculty become quickly and positively connected to the livestock industry.  To help meet this objective, LRIC is pleased to offer early career faculty the opportunity to  participate in a mentorship program.
