Ontario’s Solutions 2030 Challenge
August 17, 2017
The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) has partnered with the Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE) in the TargetGHG Collaborative R&D Program. This joint initiative aims to enable technology development between postsecondary institutions and industry partners in support of Ontario’s 2020-2030 greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction targets and the Government of Canada’s commitment to developing innovative clean technologies that promote environmental sustainability. This initiative is an essential component of a broader OCE TargetGHG Program in partnership with NSERC and Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC).
As a complementary component of the TargetGHG Program, OCE has launched Ontario’s Solutions 2030 Challenge, a global call for innovators to bring transformative and cross-sectoral technologies to market, effectively helping Ontario industry meet 2030 GHG emissions reduction targets and contributing to tackling climate change in Ontario and globally. Ontario’s Solutions 2030 Challenge is a three-phase competition over three years, with up to $7 million in funding for participating teams. OCE will provide 50% of the total project cost. Matching cash contributions may be provided by various sources, including government programs. Applications for Phase 1 must be submitted by September 22, 2017.
