The Université de Moncton recently signed a collaboration agreement with the Maison de l’Innovation de la Médecine Spécialisée (MIMS), a French non-profit organization that enhances partnerships and promotes technology transfer in the health sector. Under this agreement, UMoncton will become an official research partner of MIMS and its partners. The university will provide MIMS with an office in their institution and participate annually in the MIMS Innovation Forum. The partnership will also support the exchange of students and trainees between France and Canada. UMoncton recteur Dr Denis Prud’homme said that this partnership will lead to further collaborations in the health field and enrich the academic careers of UMoncton students.
