Funding opportunities with Sustainable Development Technology Canada
How can your company tap into federal funding programs that help bring economically viable, clean technologies to market?
On March 1, at 11 a.m. EST, Peter Kallai, President and CEO of the CPEIA, will be joined by Flora Livesey, Funding Advisor at Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC), to discuss how SDTC can help Canadian companies bring to market products and services that deliver tangible environmental benefits.
Michael Tischler, CTO of CPEIA member Cooledge Lighting, will also talk about how his company levered SDTC funding.
SDTC is an arm’s-length foundation created by the Government of Canada to fund new clean technologies.
Printable, flexible and wearable electronics have many applications that fit within SDTC’s funding mandate in a variety of industry verticals. The CPEIA is already working to build these bridges through joint initiatives with other industry associations. For example, the CPEIA’s IntelliPACK program, in partnership with PAC, Packaging Consortium, targets packaging and food waste. The IntelliBUILD program, in partnership with CABA, focuses on creating a new generation of intelligent buildings that consume less energy and can produce and harvest their own energy onsite.
This webinar is open to the public at no cost.
