OCAD University’s Campus for the Connected World on Toronto’s Waterfront is a new facility for research and innovation that will house initiatives specific to innovation training, design thinking, Big Data design and accelerator capacity that support commercialization and bring design skills to emergent companies. Part of the vision driving Ignite Imagination: The Campaign for OCAD University, the Campus for the Connected World will significantly expand OCAD University’s research, innovation and commercialization capacity.
The CCW will be located in Daniels Waterfront — City of the Arts on the eastern side of Toronto’s shoreline, at Jarvis Street and Queens Quay. As an interdisciplinary, experimental zone for developing creative digital solutions to today’s urgent social, economic, technological and environmental challenges, its fundamental focus will be on placing human knowledge and concerns at the centre of the data revolution.
A multi-use, Daniels Corporation complex, City of the Arts will include office, retail, residential, academic, research and cultural components.
