Join a group of your colleagues on Monday, February 4th beginning at 11 am EST for a CATA Teleforum Conference Round Table Briefing with Mark Wolff, Senior Director, CANARIE on the benefits of CANARIE's Cloud-Based DAIR (Digital Accelerator for Innovation and Research) program, a unique opportunity for Canadian Small-to-Medium sized companies (SME's) to tap into online testing and commercialization resources to boost their commercial success. 

Background:

Take a video minute with Mr. Wolff to learn about the basics of the DAIR benefits.

The Digital Accelerator for Innovation and Research (DAIR) Program provides an R&D Cloud environment that supports Canada’s tech innovators and entrepreneurs in designing, prototyping, validating, and demonstrating their new technology applications, products and services.

An initial DAIR pilot program, which supported 42 Canadian companies in 2011 and 2012, was considered highly successful by users. The current launch is based on positive feedback from pilot users.

Companies apply to the program through an online form. They need to outline the purpose and scope of the product they are developing, and the scale of resources being requested, such as data requirements and number of virtual machines.

Use of the DAIR program is limited to one year. Users may request up to four “cores” at no cost for that year. A core is an independent central processing unit that can read and execute program instructions. Additional cores are available at $100 each for the year. Governments across the globe are looking at how to adopt tax incentive regimes that will encourage companies to locate, exploit and commercialize technologies in their jurisdictions.  Our consultations demonstrate that action is likewise needed to eliminate Canada's ‘Commercialization Gap.”

The Teleforum Conference Call is a uniquely interactive meeting of invitation-only executives who will also be invited to related venues to extend the information sharing, access to briefing material and encourage peer exchanges.
