The City of Hamilton has announced a partnership with McMaster University, Mohawk College and Redeemer University College to launch CityLAB, an innovation hub where students, city staff and community stakeholders will co-create solutions that support the city’s strategic priorities.
Following on a worldwide movement to create more meaningful learning experiences to engage young people, CityLAB Hamilton will offer post-secondary students the chance to collaborate, design, launch and test real projects that address issues confronting Hamilton.
The pilot program will run until December 2019, and the learning environment and innovation lab will be located at the former Canadian Football Hall of Fame building.
“CityLAB Hamilton is a winning collaboration for all partners – ultimately benefitting the community through innovative projects that advance the strategic priorities of the City. I am thrilled that Hamilton is the next City to harness this growing global trend of engaging the brightest post-secondary minds to improve our City.” Fred Eisenberger, Mayor, City of Hamilton
