Funded Technologies

GreenCentre accepts green chemistry technology disclosures from university researchers across Canada. If a technology that has been disclosed to GreenCentre has strong commercialization potential but requires further basic research or testing, we will award the researchers and their institution a Proof of Principle funding grant.
