Innovation Park at Queen's University is a community of innovators and specialists where academia, industry, government and not-for-profits work together to cultivate ideas, identify and transform important technological discoveries, and propel innovations into the marketplace. The role of Innovation Park is to foster interaction among the participants in the research and innovation system and thus stimulate commercialization and economic development in the South Eastern Ontario region. With support from the provincial government, announced in the 2007 budget, and with Queen's University as the catalyst, Innovation Park has emerged as a technology development hub and an important vehicle that is helping to foster university-industry interaction, create vibrant research and innovation forums, drive and accelerate technology entrepreneurs and startups, and facilitate business retention, growth and attraction.
The Queen's Industry Partnerships team facilitates interaction with and collaboration among the university, industry and various partners. The team works closely with startups, accelerates access to university resources and talent, and provides matchmaking services to help early stage companies make valuable connections.
