The new Trent University Cleantech Commons, launched alongside the City of Peterborough, offers the potential to not only commercialize the environmental research strengths of the university, but to also create opportunities for co-op placements and employment for Trent students and graduates. The partnership between Trent and the City of Peterborough is integral to expanding opportunities by enhancing a focus on entrepreneurship, supporting start-ups, attracting new businesses to the Peterborough region, providing future jobs for students and Peterborough residents, and leveraging and expanding research partnerships at the university.

“We see the research park as something that is going to invigorate the education at Trent by making experiential learning possible. We think the research park will also advance green technologies in a way that helps build the reputation of this region.”
