Are you interested in growing your business and advancing your innovation goals at a reduced financial cost? If so, join us for a Lunch + Learn on February 19 at noon to learn more about Mitacs, a national research-funding agency dedicated to solving business problems and driving innovation in Canada.

Kathleen Mifflin, a Business Development Specialist for Mitacs, will provide an overview of the programs they offer that allow you to access international markets, maximize your investment in research and development, and/or reduce your risk of accessing and hiring research expertise.

In this Lunch + Learn, we will explore some of these programs in detail, hear from businesses who have successfully executed research projects with the help of Mitacs, and answer any and all questions on how to get started on your own project!
