The Ontario North Green Economy Network (ONGEN) supports development of a pan-regional green economy by cooridinating research, support services and industries. ONGEN's target is to create new economic opportunity through production of green energy, chemicals and natural health compounds, all within a sustainability benchmarked framework.


The most effective way to generate a green economy is to identify unique regional resources, as well as identify regional and international markets for arising products and expertise. The goals are new avenues for sustainable green economic development and job creation coupled to energy conservation and greenhouse gas emission reduction.


Opportunities: funded by industry and research councils we have a range of collaborative research and development projects and opportunities exist for graduates in engineering and biological sciences at the Master's and PhD level. If you are interested in a position or about the work being conducted, please email Dr. Ashley Scott (jascott@laurentian.ca).
