THE EDITOR

A dedicated research
facility opened
on campus this
year-the first one
in the university's
history. Read our
cover story to find
out how researchers
are collaborating
at the Centre for
Urban Innovation to
solve complex urban
problems. The centre
also houses two
startup zones-the
Clean Energy Zone,
and the Science
Discovery Zone, the
only incubator in the
GTA with a chemistry
lab, where more than
40 companies are
in development.
