Accessing government funding programs might be a little bit easier, thanks to an Environment Canada workshop to be held in early February.
"Funding Opportunities for Environmental Innovation: Enhancing Competitiveness and Sustainability" is a workshop for those interested in learning about how to obtain government funding for technology, research & development, demonstration and commercialization projects.
Speakers will include Danny Epstein, regional director of Environment Canada’s Environmental Protection Branch (Ontario Region); Bruce Ringrose, a climate change officer at Natural Resources Canada; Richard Abbott, an industrial technical advisor at the National Research Council; and Dino Radocchia, a senior policy advisor, municipal investment branch, at the ministry of public infrastructure renewal.
The conference will be held on February 7, 2005 at the Novotel Hotel in North York, Ontario. Registration and continental breakfast will begin at 8:15 a.m. The day includes a networking lunch and the speakers also plan to be available throughout the day in order to answer any questions participants wish to discuss. The event should wrap up at about 4:30 p.m.
Advanced registration is $80. Registration at the door is $100, provided space is available.
