About Us

Science to Society


We believe that science is the foundation for a better quality of life.


Our vision is to be a place where you can connect with exceptional research, talent, training, innovative companies, and government to create products and services that benefit society.

The Impact Centre at the University of Toronto is a diverse group of researchers and entrepreneurs dedicated to taking science to benefit society. Through collaborative R&D projects, we give an innovation edge to our industry partners of all sizes and help accelerate their product development. We build entrepreneurial skills and attitudes in hundreds of students a year with our experiential learning programs. These activities result in a more competitive industry base, new high-tech products launched by established companies, students equipped with job-ready skills, and the creation of technology-based startups.
