Canadian International Innovation Program (CIIP) | Global Affairs Canada

Value: Canadian industry may receive up to 50% of their part of eligible project costs.


The Canadian International Innovation Program (CIIP) fosters and supports collaborative industrial research and development projects with high potential for commercialization between Canada and partner countries. It also stimulates bilateral science and technology networking and matchmaking activities to further new partnerships and accelerate the commercialization of research and development. The CIIP is a “seed fund”, meaning that various other public and private sector participants are also encouraged to bring science and technology expertise and funds of their own to the bilateral relationship. Partner countries are: Brazil, China, India, Israel, and South Korea.

CIIP is a funding program offered by Global Affairs Canada and is delivered in collaboration with the National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC-IRAP) for Brazil, China, India and South Korea. The program is delivered by The Canada-Israel Industrial Research and Development Foundation (CIIRDF) for Israel.
