The NAIT Productivity and Innovation Centre (PIC) is a 17,650 square metre (190,000 square feet) of purpose-built space aimed at creating a revolutionary place where industry comes to solve problems and to succeed. It provides comprehensive support to industry by working to enhance productivity, spur innovation, foster a deeper culture of entrepreneurship, and solve industry-driven problems through applied research.

Located at the most easterly part of NAIT’s Main Campus at the convergence of Princess Elizabeth Avenue, 118th Avenue, and 102 Street, the NAIT PIC is an applied research centre and teaching facility that houses advanced manufacturing and testing laboratory spaces, acceleration spaces for small and medium-sized businesses, a 250-person multi-purpose lecture theater, classrooms, and collaboration spaces along with administrative, and industry partner offices. The space is highly flexible and designed to evolve as the needs of industry change and modern technologies emerge.

Building on NAIT’s established strengths and historic relationship with industry, PIC is transformative for Alberta. Funding for PIC was made possible through the Government of Canada’s Post-Secondary Institutions Strategic Investment Fund and is the first building at NAIT dedicated to helping industry partners become globally competitive.
