Join industry, government and academic leaders for a half day event and learn how to leverage your R&D investment 3:1.

New Funding Opportunity:

We are looking for innovation-ready, Ontario-based manufacturing companies that are interested in increasing global sales through ground-breaking products and processes.

Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE) in partnership with the Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters (CME) and the Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) are hosting an event to launch an exciting new funding program. OCE’s Voucher for Industry Association (VIA) R&D Challenge funds industry-academic collaborations aimed at addressing industry challenges and creating significant economic impact for Ontario. Industry can leverage their research and development investments three to one, up to a project size of $400K.

The R&D Challenge Forum will bring together Ontario’s researchers and manufacturing industry and encourage partnerships towards the development and commercialization of ground-breaking products and/or processes for global markets.

Presenters will speak to the successes, opportunities and challenges of Ontario’s manufacturing industry and what is needed to expedite novel, high value products to market. Specific details regarding the VIA program and the expression of interest proposal will be provided.

Examples of types of projects: Innovative new products and processes. Innovative use of energy, manpower and materials. Projects must meet known customer (or end user) demand, or address a significant customer pain point, and must have global export potential from a manufacturing base in Ontario.
