The Canadian city of Waterloo has become internationally renowned as a hub of deep scientific research, innovation and high-tech industry. At the University of Waterloo's Institute for Quantum Computing, researchers are learning to harness the laws of quantum mechanics to create powerful new technologies that will transform science and society. This kind of fundamental research is part of a bigger equation in Waterloo; ideas that emerge from this research are beginning to burst from the lab and enter the marketplace as practical real-world technologies. Waterloo is a renowned hotbed for the incubation and growth of innovative high-tech companies. Organizations such as the Accelerator Centre help transform bold new ideas into successful start-up companies and industries. The ability to pursue cutting-edge science, develop new technologies and successfully guide these technologies to market will be crucial for Canada to remain competitive in the global economy, and develop new industries leading to economic growth and job creation. This process — from revolutionary ideas to successful commercialization — is Waterloo's continuum of innovation.
