Applied Research & Innovation
Applied Research is an essential component of the mandate of Lethbridge College. To serve our community as the leader in continuous workplace learning, Lethbridge College is and will continue to be acknowledged as a highly respected institution known for the dissemination of knowledge and technology transfer to business and industry at the local, national and international level. In order to fulfill this service role, Lethbridge College must establish partnerships to interact with local, national and international communities, maintain the trust and confidence of these larger communities, and provide a venue for unbiased inquiry, which is necessary to discover knowledge through research. While encouraging greater participation by the local, national and international communities in Lethbridge College research activities, including participation in funded research, there is a need for Lethbridge College to define its relationships with those communities, and for formalizing and communicating Lethbridge College's standards with respect to ownership of intellectual property and ethical matters (e.g. confidentiality, conflict of interest, use of human/animal subjects).
