Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) [TCS Q1FY23 result 2022] (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS), launched TCS Pace Port™ Toronto, its fifth global research and co-innovation centre, to help Canadian companies bring digital innovations to life faster.

Located on the top floor of 400 University Avenue and spanning 16,000 square feet, Pace Port Toronto provides companies with access to the latest technologies and breakthrough thinking from TCS Research labs, start-ups, VCs, entrepreneurs, and academia – including the University of Toronto – as well as TCS’ network of Pace Ports in New York, Pittsburgh, Amsterdam, and Tokyo.

Plugging into this collective ecosystem of innovators and intellectual property through TCS’ Co-Innovation Network (COIN™) will enable Canadian companies to embrace a hybrid approach to collaborative innovation to set the pace of transformation in their industry.

TCS Pace Port hubs around the world include over 4,000 researchers and innovators, more than 2,300 start-up partners, over 30 innovation labs, and 67 academic partners.

Pace Port Toronto features an agile workspace, training space, academic research lab, and innovation showcase to encourage rapid prototyping, research, and commercializing of advanced technologies.

In support of local partner ecosystems, TCS also announced a $1,000,000 CAD gift to the University of Toronto’s Data Centre at the School of Cities, earmarked to support the building of smart cities.

TCS and STEM Education

TCS is committed to leading change and learning in local communities. TCS Pace Port Toronto will also serve as an anchor for two TCS STEM educational programs, the TCS goIT Student Awareness Program and Ignite My Future in School.

Through engaging design workshops and custom mentorship experiences, goIT impacts students around the globe by challenging stereotypes and inspiring our future leaders to pursue careers in STEM and the computer sciences.
