Application Deadline:

1) Kinetica Innovation Centre at SAIT (KICS) is a 2,200 sq foot facility that helps Alberta innovators and researchers accelerate prototyping efforts by offering co-working wet and dry lab space, access to an array of SAIT testing and fabrication facilities and entrepreneur and company development services through the Calgary Regional Innovation Network.
2) Technology Demonstration Hall Tis an applied research asset accessible to SAIT staff, faculty, researchers and students on campus in any discipline. The facility is often used for collaboration with presentations made to business and industry partners.
3) Industry Innovation labs (440,000 square feet of space) are available to industry partners who do not have their own dedicated applied research space. Space can be fit to meet company specific needs throughout the duration of applied research projects. Industry partners interested in using this space typically provide their own equipment and resources, although SAIT works with company to customize the space, plan and build the set-up required.
