Southern Ontario Smart Computing Innovation Platform

The University of Toronto, Western University, McMaster University, Queen’s University, the University of Ontario Institute of Technology, the University of Ottawa, the University of Waterloo, and IBM Canada Ltd. have established a platform for research collaboration and innovation unlike any in Canada. The Southern Ontario Smart Computing Innovation Platform (SOSCIP) is a unique combination of high performance, cloud, and agile computing resources located at U of T and Western, as well as distributed “collaboratories” for research and development between academia and industry.

Future Success

Key to our success will be embracing a wide range of industrial partners, primarily small-to-medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), and providing them with access to new technologies and expertise that would otherwise be beyond their reach. This unique innovation model, a true partnership among universities, SMEs, and a lead technology company, will establish Ontario as a leading global centre for innovation in areas that are critically important to society: information and communications technology, health and health care applications, and smart urban infrastructure (water, energy, transportation).

Call for Business-led Proposals

A new business-led Call for Proposals to access SOSCIP computing resources is open to Ontario businesses in partnership with principal investigators from SOSCIP member universities.  Proposals may be submitted at any time up to 5:00pm September 30, 2013.
