McMaster Innovation Park (MIP) is the place where visions are realized and ideas are transformed into commercial opportunities through collaboration with McMaster University. MIP offers research opportunities in Hamilton that develop from its recognition as one of the best research parks in Canada, with innovative spaces and facilities housing laboratory, office, teaching, training, and conference facilities in support of research and development in a number of key industrial areas: advanced manufacturing and materials, nanotechnology, bio-technology, and other areas in which McMaster University has recognized emerging technology strengths.
McMaster Innovation Park has a vision to be an internationally recognized focal point for, innovation, creativity, learning and research excellence aligned with the research strengths of McMaster University. Within this vision is the aim to house ten buildings with 1,500-1,800 employees within the next 10 years.
Current buildings include the Atrium@MIP, the McMaster Automotive Resource Centre, and the CanmetMATERIALS Laboratory with a total of 718 full-time employees with two more projects underway: the Emerging Technology Centre (ETC) and the Fraunhofer-McMaster Project Centre that will house the Biomedical Engineering and Advanced Manufacturing Project Centre (BEAM). The ETC will be an 80,000 square foot built-to-suit, state of the art facility that will attract researchers from around the world. BEAM will be the place of collaboration for McMaster University and Germanys Fraunhofer IZI in cell therapies and point-of-care diagnostics.
McMaster Innovation Park offers sites of .5 to 5 acres fully serviced. MIP will design, build and lease back custom buildings or will design a building with your needs included in a larger build. MIP is committed to using sustainable design principles, transforming former brownfields into a premier research park.
