Trent launches new Cleantech initiative, partners on long-term care housing

March 31, 2021
Trent University has announced two major initiatives recently: a new Cleantech Innovation Portal announced by Trent’s Cleantech Commons, and a long-term care housing build. The Cleantech Innovation Portal will support pandemic economic recovery for cleantech ventures by providing opportunities, creating a virtual marketplace, accelerating the impact of innovation, and connecting companies with customers and investors. Trent has also partnered with peopleCare Communities to establish a 224-bed long-term care home that will address the region’s needs and provide new opportunities for students. “Through this groundbreaking intergenerational project,” explained Trent President Dr Leo Groarke, “we will co-design a long-term care home that will improve the lives of local seniors at the same time that it advances student life and learning.” Trent (Cleantech) | Trent (peopleCare) | Global News (ON)
