Working with our members, Katrin is looking after the Innovation Mobilization (IM) Program, which helps industry engage with researchers and works to commercialize institutional opportunities. The goal is to advance as many technologies and knowhow as possible, mobilizing the knowledge that resides within member institutions into industry and to foster industry engagement. As part of her role as communications coordinator, Katrin looks after Springboard’s day to day communications.

With her previous experience as an AIF project manager at Acadia University, Katrin has developed her knowledge of commercializing and protecting IP from an institution and has been working indirectly with Springboard for the last 5 years via the IM Program.

In her free time, she enjoys fiber arts, running, gardening and baking.
