Ministry of Research and Innovationís Ė

This four-year, $24-million Innovation Demonstration Fund will help companies develop promising new technologies by supporting them at the pilot or demonstration project stage. The fund focuses on new bio-based products (made from biological or renewable materials), environmental and alternative energy technologies. The result will be high-value jobs, future economic prosperity and improved quality of life for Ontario families.

This program targets technologies that have gone through initial testing in the lab, but now need to be tested at the pilot or demonstration stage to see if the technology can be competitive when brought to market.  For example, specific equipment may have to be purchased to pilot the technology or additional expert staff may have to be hired.  A successful pilot often means these technologies have a much greater chance of success than ones at the "idea-only" stage.
