Ingenious is online New ARISE Building to Expand Collaborative Research at Carleton On March 13, 2017, Carleton University took the next big step towards its goals of reducing energy consumption and expanding research on green and smart technologies by initiating construction of its highly anticipated Institute for Advanced Research and Innovation in Smart Environments (ARISE). The $29 million facility will help to break new ground in collaborative research at Carleton, housing researchers from all five faculties who will focus on applied research in areas such as clean technologies, health technology, and information and communication technology. ARISE’s construction will include the renovation of roughly 23,000 square feet of Carleton’s existing Life Sciences Research Building, as well as the addition of 34,500 square feet. In support of Carleton’s campus master plan to create an environmentally responsible and sustainable campus, the facility will be highly energy efficient and will incorporate multiple intelligent building features. Once completed, the re-purposed and expanded research centre will help to bolster innovation in areas such as 5G wireless, smart cities, data analytics and complementary fields. The institute will also focus on enhancing applied research in pursuit of innovation and commercialization opportunities, facilitating interactions with industry and featuring a space for start-up incubation. “ARISE will become a true living laboratory that will allow students to obtain marketable skills and become entrepreneurs,” says Rafik Goubran, Carleton University’s Vice-President (Research and International). “We will be supporting their start-ups and facilitating their interactions with small and medium-sized enterprises, as well as global multinational firms.” Construction for ARISE is projected to be completed in the summer of 2018.
