Event description

Description

Are you a global company visiting Toronto for the Collision Conference? Learn about opportunities to work with the University of Toronto's research and entrepreneurship community and stretch your legs with a walking tour of our beautiful downtown campus!

The University of Toronto is renowned as one of the world’s great research and entrepreneurial universities. Our research expertise spans everything from insulin to AI. Our current research excellence covers fields as diverse as regenerative medicine, machine learning, autonomous vehicles, smart materials, precision medicine, smart cities, and quieter airplanes. We collaborate successfully with companies of all sizes (approximately 300 at any given moment), from local startups to global enterprises, from research and development through to commercialization. Meanwhile, U of T Entrepreneurship is #1 in Canada for research-based startups and among the top 5 university-managed business incubators in the world.

Program

Learn about Research/Entrepreneurship Opportunities at the University of Toronto (1 hour)

Attend a one-hour Introduction to Sponsored Research Partnerships and Entrepreneurial Engagement at the University of Toronto in ONRamp – our collaboration and co-working space, conveniently located next to Queen’s Park TTC station and across from MaRS Discovery District and learn how easy it is to connect with our researchers.

Campus Walking Tour of the University of Toronto (1 hour)

Following each of our introductory partnership/entrepreneurship presentations, stretch your legs for an extra bonus – a guided one-hour campus walking tour of the University of Toronto's historic downtown St. George campus, highlighting some of the University’s research and entrepreneurship facilities, in our oasis in the heart of Toronto, adjacent to the city’s thriving Discovery District.

Sites of interest range from historical research facilities from the last century (insulin and space-suits), to gleaming new state-of-the-art buildings abuzz with leading edge research and entrepreneurial hubs (AI and regenerative medicine).
