IRICoR is proud to welcome Ms. Hélène Grangé to its team, as Senior Manager – Contracts and Licenses.
As part of IRICoR’s business development team, Ms. Grangé will play a key role in the development and management of contracts and licenses involving IRICoR and its numerous partners in the private and public sectors. She will interact with various stakeholders both internally (legal, finance, project management, intellectual property) and externally (academic institutions, principal researchers, companies).
For the last 15 years, Hélène has worked in the field of valorization of university innovations at the Université de Montréal. She has helped negotiate several collaboration and license agreements, mainly in the life sciences field. Previously, Mrs. Grangé was a consultant at Parteurop Developpement where she worked in the strategic analysis of companies specializing in vaccines. She also was a consultant for Gestion Valeo, and as a valorization advisor with investigators in hospital research centres.
Hélène was also very involved in entrepreneurship by being part of the management committee of the Centre d’entrepreneuriat Poly-UdeM and in the strategic planning on entrepreneurship of the Université de Montréal. That initiative resulted in creating an entrepreneurship coordination position at the UdeM.
“I am particularly excited to welcome Hélène to our team. Her experience in the field, both in academia and the pharmaceutical industry is a great asset to IRICoR” commented Nadine Beauger, President and CEO at IRICoR.
