Calgary Economic Development (‘CED’) and the Opportunity Calgary Investment Fund (‘OCIF’), working with numerous collaborators, invite qualified firms to submit a proposal for the Innovation District Scoping Study Request for Proposal (RFP).
Since 2016, numerous organizations, including CED, OCIF, Platform Calgary, the City of Calgary, and other collaborators have been working together on the creation of an Innovation District for Calgary. Innovation Districts encourage collisions between private sector, post-secondary institutions, research institutes, laboratories, startups and scaleups, and investors by creating a compact cluster of key Innovation Assets.
Now is the right time to conduct a Scoping Study to bring the community together and rally behind the creation of a city underpinned by Innovation and creativity.
We look forward to working with a Vendor who has diverse experience in building Innovation Ecosystems and clusters, and presents a bold, unique concept for Calgary’s Innovation District.
