UNIVERSITY INNOVATION QUARTER
Innovation thrives at the confluence of place, ideas, and people. The existing area has significant capacity for growth, connectivity, and densification to accommodate a rich ecosystem of research, industry, innovation, and entrepreneurial activities.
The future of UIQ will provide more opportunities for dynamic clusters of like-minded research and innovation to thrive — energizing the potential to increase research and discovery, all in one place.
Designing a lively urban place where access to resources is abundant will lead to economic growth, jobs in Calgary, partnerships between dynamic innovation companies, and research that cultivates community and fosters collaboration.
Mindful design decisions will incorporate a multi-layered approach at integrating thoughtful places for people to live, work, and play — with innovation at the forefront.
