SFU’s 4D LABS bridging gap to create innovations that benefit society

April 04, 2018

From prototyping to production, Simon Fraser University’s 4D LABS has it all.

The $65-million state-of-the-art materials science and engineering research facility will be at this year’s #BCTECH Summit, happening May 14-16, 2018.

Located at the SFU Innovates booth—in the Marketplace at the Vancouver Convention Centre—4D LABS will exhibit a broad range of innovations from remote-controlled fuel cell cars to Nanotech Security Corporation holograms.

4D LABS is a one-of-a-kind core facility located at SFU’s Burnaby campus, where researchers, engineers and industry clients can develop prototypes and leverage characterization and testing equipment to understand, develop and resolve potential product issues in a variety of fields. In addition, the facility provides students, researchers, businesses and government organizations with expert technical consultation, training and open-access to equipment, all in one location.
