Ryerson to boost commercialization, incubation with Centre for Urban Innovation

October 3, 2016

Ryerson University has received nearly $37M from the federal and Ontario governments to transform its commercialization activities and enhance its world-class incubator network. Canada will provide nearly $20M to support the construction of Ryerson’s new Centre for Urban Innovation, which will be home to the Centre for Urban Energy, the Ryerson Urban Water Institute, the Data Science Lab, the Smart Infrastructure Hub and the Food Research Lab. An additional $16.7M from Canada and Ontario will be used to modernize and upgrade research laboratories and infrastructure in Ryerson's science, engineering, and design buildings. “The changes coming to our campus will create more state-of-the-art facilities to shape Canada's future innovators, researchers, and entrepreneurs,” said Ryerson President Mohamed Lachemi.
