Value: Up to $250,000 per year for both the college and university participants combined. The maximum grant for either participant is $125,000 per year.
CU-I2I Grants are intended to develop and strengthen research links between colleges, universities and businesses to accelerate the development of promising technologies and promote their commercialization into the Canadian marketplace. Direct project costs are shared by the company partner(s) and the CCI Program. Projects may span up to three years in duration.
To be eligible, a company partner must operate from a Canadian base and must be able to fully exploit the results of the applied research so that it will lead to significant economic benefit for the company and/or Canada. Company partners are expected to be local or regional small and medium-sized enterprises.
A wide variety of organizations (businesses, colleges, hospitals, public utilities, and associations) can be partners, but only private-sector companies are considered eligible partners for leveraging cash and/or in-kind contributions.
