September 1, 2016

The University of Guelph is poised to undertake “one of its largest-ever infrastructure improvement projects” thanks to a $30M investment from the federal and Ontario governments. A university release states that the funding will be used to support six initiatives across UoGuelph’s campus, including the creation of a new centre for the innovation and commercialization of bio-carbon technologies. UoGuelph plans to contribute an additional $35.7M to the new funds for a total investment of $66.6M. “This critical investment will allow us to expand our world-class facilities and the reach and impact of U of G innovations,” said UoGuelph President Franco Vaccarino. “The new spaces and resources will also facilitate the exchange of new ideas and opportunities, providing benefits for decades to come.” UoGuelph
