The Government of Canada recently announced new funding to support Simon Fraser University’s Big Data Hub and 4D LABS. SFU’s 4D LABS has received $2M to establish the Centre for Environmental and Food Analysis (CEFA), which will support clean technology commercialization and adoption. The funding will also be used to install and operate new equipment and undertake facility renovations and upgrades. The Big Data Hub received $600K to increase the capacity of the Supercomputer Cedar, create an online consulting space, acquire high-performance computers, and hire staff. “Simon Fraser University is grateful for the generous support of 4D LABS and the Big Data Hub—two of our core facilities,” said SFU VP, Research and International Dugan O’Neil.
