George Brown College Research partner Clear Blue Technologies in the news

George Brown College Research partner Clear Blue Technologies is featured in a Toronto Star profile that describes their off-grid street light product and its development at the GBC Research Labs. In Colleges eager to offer startups help with R&D, Star writer Dana Flavelle outlines how our faculty and students worked with Clear Blue to go from concept to commercialization. GBC faculty Leo Salemi, who leads green energy research at the college, helped test and build prototypes for Clear Blue, using our Casa Loma campus roof top as a platform for testing and development.

Salemi, winner of a GBC Innovation award, has led a team to the Microsoft Imagine Cup Finals as one of the top 3 entries in Canada. If they win they go to Australia in July. Good luck to Leo and his team!
