For nearly three decades, Western Research Parks have served as a strong link between academics and commerce, and a key contributor to the movement of an idea or a discovery from concept to the marketplace. The original Park, now called Western Discovery Park, is located adjacent to Western University and is home to over 200,000 square feet of office space, lab space and industrial grade space, including the Stiller Centre for Technology Commercialization, one of Canada’s most successful biotechnology incubators.
Tenants at Western Discovery Park range from national government laboratories, to multi-national industrial research centres, to some of Canada’s fastest growing emerging companies. Western Discovery Park is also home to Windermere Manor, a 48 room hotel and conference centre which hosts tens of thousands of visitors every year.
Western has expanded its Park program and contributed to the opening of two more Parks, a 10 hectare site located alongside Highway 401 called the Western Advanced Manufacturing Park, and a 30 hectare location just south of highway 402 called the Western-Sarnia-Lambton Research Park.
Using a blend of quality facilities, exceptional client services and strong collaborative partners, Western Research Parks have and will continue to live its legacy by seeking and supporting knowledge-based companies and cohorts in their respective quests to improve our lives and the world around us.
