A REVITALIZATION IS UNDERWAY
Ownership of the UIQ lands was transferred from the Province of Alberta to the University of Calgary (UCalgary) in 2018. UCalgary then entered a 130-year lease with University Innovation Quarter Trust (UIQT) to operate, manage and develop the land. University of Calgary Properties Group is the Trustee for UIQT and will steward the revitalization of UIQ as the award-winning developer for the area.
University Innovation Quarter (UIQ) is a place envisioned to translate UCalgary creativity and research into economic prosperity and job growth for Calgary. The existing ecosystem is comprised of outdated infrastructure in need of revitalization to strengthen the interconnectivity within an innovation hub.
The vision for UIQ pushes boundaries to support building and scaling world solutions, policies, research, and inventions. UIQ will be lively and active, attracting talent, start-ups, investors, and researchers. It will be a vibrant place for innovation and networking.
This is where bold ideas and reality collide — where innovation is brought to life.
As it pursues the goal of transforming UIQ into a rich ecosystem of research, industry, innovation, and entrepreneurialism, University of Calgary Properties Group (UCPG) maintains collaborative relationships with the University of Calgary (UCalgary) and Innovate Calgary. The University leads academic and research programming, while Innovate Calgary is the University’s business incubator.
