18 18 Approval Success rate 80-90%

19 19 Engage Grants …foster the development of new research partnerships between academic researchers and companies. Grants support short-term R&D projects that address a company-specific problem.  Six-month projects  Max. of $25,000 from NSERC  No company cash required (in-kind expected)  Company owns the IP IDEAL for SMEs The power of leverage

20 20 Example - Engage René Landry ÉTS Marinvent Corporation St-Bruno, QC Wireless autonomous aerodynamic performance monitor (APM) sensing device $25,000

21 21 Approval Success rate 80-90%

22 22 Interaction Grant Objective: –Allow academic researchers to meet with potential industrial partners to discuss and identify a challenge specific to the company, that could be addressed by a subsequent R&D partnership Deliverables: –Up to $5,000 to cover for travel, accommodation and venue, for the applicant, UILO and/or company staff if justified Timeline: maximum 3 months

23 23 Finding Canadian Expertise... NSERC Awards Search Engine: contains the results of NSERC competitions and information on its funding since 1991. This allows foreign researchers to identify Canadian researchers that received NSERC funds in specific fields of research ( ). NSERC Chairholder Database: is designed to connect you with some of Canada’s leading scientists and engineers. Each profile includes a summary of the Chairholders’ activities, relevant key words, partnering organizations and contact information ( ) Canada Research Chairs: this database contains short profiles of each of the Canada Research Chairs to date (access the researchers profiles with drop- down menus; ( )

24 24 11,500 researchers / 55,000 students in 72 Canadian universities Over 1,400 companies participated since 1983 annual increase of 100 – over 230 in last 9 months Financial risk reduction Various programs: up to 2:1 cash leverage - In-kind recognized SR & ED Substantial impact on cost reduction Partnerships - advantages
