Industry

Research innovations realized by ICICS members are transferred to society through industrial partnerships, via the University Industrial Liaison Office (UILO). These research outcomes also reach society through spin-off companies launched by ICICS members and/or their students, harnessing a full suite of entrepreneurial programs available to the UBC community through entrepreneurship@UBC (e@UBC). Selected ventures may be accepted into the HATCH accelerator in ICICS. Please contact us to connect with ICICS researchers with whom you may wish to collaborate.

ICICS is the Relationship Manager for a multi-million dollar partnership between Rogers and UBC to build a real-world 5G Hub on the UBC-Vancouver campus, as a “living lab” testbed for 5G innovation.  ICICS researchers form a number of difference disciplines are using the network to carry out research projects involving 5G.

Most external funding of ICICS members’ research requires industrial support, which helps to ensure the relevance of their work. ICICS-affiliated graduate students working on these projects are trained to think across disciplinary boundaries, making them highly adaptable and creative individuals. Industrial collaborators have access to hundreds of these highly qualified personnel annually through collaborations with ICICS members.
