Exciting news for the Greenhouse Technology Network (GTN) as the new website is launched: greenhousetechnetwork.ca offers a one-stop online hub that compiles the incredible capabilities to help grow innovation for Ontario’s greenhouse industry.
GTN is a network of three research-focused institutions – Niagara College’s Agriculture & Environmental Technologies Innovation Centre, University of Guelph’s Controlled Environment Systems Research Facility and Vineland Research and Innovation Centre –that collaborate with small- and medium-sized organizations to advance the development, adoption, and implementation of technologies to support greenhouse innovation. The network leverages faculty, students and state-of-the-market facilities and equipment, together with government funding, to support greenhouse and related technology businesses. Industry partner contributions (cash and in-kind) to solve innovation challenges are matched 1:1 up to a maximum of $100K match per project ($200K project total).
Please help spread the word to the Ontario greenhouse industry and related technology providers. Interested businesses can “apply now” at greenhousetechnetwork.ca. Project intake is ongoing; all projects to be completed by March 2024.
