What is the IOS?

The IOS, an independent institute within the University of Toronto, aims to bring together a community of students, researchers, and industry leaders to help advance science, engineering, business, and society. We accomplish this by delivering events and programs focused around three main pillars: Discovery, Education, and Entrepreneurship.
