SFU opens renovated Innovation Plaza


Simon Fraser University has opened a newly renovated innovation space in downtown Surrey, British Columbia. The SFU Innovation Plaza houses the Quantum Algorithms Institute, the BC Centre for Agritech Innovation, and the Charles Chang Institute for Entrepreneurship’s Coast Capital Venture Connection. The plaza includes offices and open seating, meeting rooms, and classroom space. The renovations were supported by over $2.5M from the federal and provincial governments. “At the SFU Innovation Plaza, academia, government, and industry will come together to generate new technology solutions that position BC as a global leader in innovation,” said SFU President Joy Johnson.
