November 13, 2012

The University of Toronto launched Monday its TechnoLABS space, which provides support and training for students and recent graduates who are leading and founding companies based on technological innovations. "TechnoLABS is a space dedicated to a new generation of student entrepreneurs with strong science and engineering backgrounds who are turning their discoveries in the lab into products and solutions that can benefit all Canadians," says the director for uToronto's Institute for Optical Science, adding that the space "essentially accelerates the process by which outstanding fundamental science carried out at the university is translated into tangible economic benefits." TechnoLABS is located in uToronto's Banting & Best Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, which fosters the development of student and alumni-led research. uToronto News
