CEP Ottawa Presents:


Cleantech Innovation: An evening with decision makers and entrepreneurs


Wednesday, November 26, 2014


Join us for an engaging evening dedicated to Cleantech Innovation! We’ll hear from three leading cleantech professionals currently working in the sector, whose perspectives will prompt larger questions about the opportunities and challenges that exist for cleantech in Canada today.


In the form of a panel discussion moderated by Bruce Dudley, VP of the Delphi Group, CEP is bringing together these experts to discuss the various challenges and opportunities for Clean Technologies Innovation from a technological, financial and policy perspective. Panelists will be taking questions from the audience during the question period.
