UCalgary, BCIT launch innovation hubs


The University of Calgary and the British Columbia Institute of Technology have both launched new innovation hubs on their campuses. UCalgary launched the Social Innovation Hub (SIH), which will provide support to innovators and start-ups focused on solutions to social problems as they launch and scale. The hub provides members with connections to mentorship, networks, funding, space, a makerspace, and more. BCIT and Teck Resources Limited opened the Teck Copper Innovation Hub, which will use 3D printing to produce copper and composite healthcare devices. The hub will provide a space for students and researchers to explore how copper can be used to enhance safety in healthcare devices and in other real-life applications.
