It is based in Edmonton, Alberta and is located in the TEC-Edmonton Business Incubator. The Centre provides support for the exchange of information, development of networks, and the establishment and cultivation of collaborative partnerships in academia, business, and industry. The central focus is on enhancing international knowledge and technology transfer, and on raising the profile of Canada and Europe as centres of excellence in innovation and research.
