UBC and Amazon Web Services announce Canada’s first Cloud Innovation Centre

On July 10, 2019, Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS), announced the launch of a Cloud Innovation Centre (CIC) at UBC at their annual IMAGINE education conference in Seattle. The CIC is the first of its kind in Canada, and provides UBC students, staff, and faculty access to cloud technology to advance projects, along with employing Amazon’s innovation processes.

Branded as the UBC Community Health and Wellbeing CIC, powered by AWS, the Centre supports student teams tackling real-world issues and challenges, where application of novel and emerging technology or computing approaches are essential. The CIC will change the way UBC teams use cloud technology, drive innovation, and improve agility and cost.
