Catherine Beaudry

Catherine Beaudry has a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Polytechnique Montréal and master’s and doctoral degrees in economics from the University of Oxford. She is currently a full professor in the Department of Mathematical and Industrial Engineering at Polytechnique Montréal, where she holds the Tier I Canada Research Chair for the Creation, Development and the Commercialization of Innovation and leads the Partnership for the Organisation of Innovation and New Technologies (4POINT0).

Beaudry specializes in the economy of innovation and its impact on business performance, as well as in the evaluation of research and the science and technology framework. The Canada Research Chair project studies the steps leading to innovation and those that allow innovation to create market value, following the process from the initial science and technology concept to the commercialization of innovative products and services. The Chair’s multidisciplinary work takes a global look at the science, technology and innovation system as a whole and decompartmentalizes the innovation process.

Beaudry’s primary research interests are the interaction between collaborative networks and industrial clusters within innovation ecosystems, and how these interactions influence the performance and survival of innovative businesses. 4POINT0 aims to develop new innovation indicators (from web exploration) adapted to these ecosystems in order to provide decision‑makers with near real‑time decision support tools.
