Cleantech Commons is Canada’s premier location for clean technology research and innovation.

Our clean technology Research and Innovation Park will play host to a cluster of high-impact companies: start-ups, spinouts, and growth ventures, as well as corporate accelerators and “innovation outposts” focused on clean, green, low-/ zero-carbon, and sustainable technology; agro-biotechnology; water technology; and biomaterials.

Cleantech Commons™ research and innovation park is affiliated with Trent University, one of Canada’s leading environmental academic institutions. This relationship provides the Cleantech Commons community of innovators and entrepreneurs with access to cutting-edge resources, facilities, academic and corporate connections, and collaborative research opportunities. See “Tenancy at Cleantech Commons”.

The designated land for Cleantech Commons is being carefully, thoughtfully, intentionally, and expertly developed.

As businesses and their people occupy our innovation campus, development will be landscape-led: integrated into the existing topography, maintaining existing natural features, and creating as little of a human footprint as possible. Green building and transportation principles, together with sustainable and low-impact design, will all be key. Tenant operations at Cleantech Commons are all required to be environmentally friendly.

Cleantech Commons at Trent University is designed to produce big ideas, impactful innovation, powerful relationships, and meaningful results – all to support ventures focused on creating new solutions and leveraging new technologies to help solve global energy, environment, and climate challenges.
