UBC Innovation Precinct
It’s more than a eureka moment or the creation of a new app or widget. Innovation is a living landscape of thoughts and ideas destined to make a difference in the world. It grows the economy, supports society and changes how we live our lives. UBC is building a community of thought leaders, idea generators and change agents to positively influence the economy and create unique opportunities for the Okanagan.
UBC is excited to announce the creation of a revolutionary new space for research and development activity in the region. Situated on a 60-acre parcel of land at the Okanagan campus in Kelowna, the Innovation Precinct will be a physical and intellectual hub for innovation and expertise. Integrated. Interdisciplinary. Industrial. Academic. A dedicated space where the best and brightest minds converge to solve critical challenges and deploy innovative new technology solutions. Learn more about the Innovation Precinct’s inaugural research venture with Avcorp Industries.
The Innovation Precinct is a wonderful example of the kinds of global partnerships we’re building here.”
