July 28, 2020
Trent University has received $4.8M from the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario to support infrastructure development in the Trent Enterprise Centre (TEC). TEC is an on-campus accelerator initiative designed to support the commercialization of clean technologies. Trent describes the centre as the only clean-technology accelerator in Canada with both shared laboratories and pilot facilities to support clean-tech start-ups, business growth, and commercialization. “This major federal investment supports our exciting development at Cleantech Commons, which will make the Greater Peterborough region an emerging hub of clean, green technology,” said Trent President Leo Groarke. “In partnership with the City of Peterborough, we are working to not only be a leader in this emerging technology field but to also spur economic growth by creating science-based jobs, retaining top talent, driving innovation and attracting more investment.” Trent | Global News (ON)
