** Agenda Subject to Change
NSERC aims to make Canada a country of discoverers and innovators for the benefit of all Canadians. The agency supports university students in their advanced studies, promotes and supports discovery research, and fosters innovation by encouraging Canadian companies to participate and invest in postsecondary research projects. NSERC researchers are on the vanguard of science, building on Canada’s long tradition of scientific excellence.
Mitacs is a national, not-for-profit organization that has designed and delivered research and training programs in Canada for 19 years. Working with 60 universities, 4,000 companies, and both federal and provincial governments, we build partnerships that support industrial and social innovation in Canada.
Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE) drives the development of Ontario’s economy by helping create new jobs, products, services, technologies and businesses.
In partnership with industry, OCE co-invests to commercialize innovation originating in the province’s publicly funded colleges, universities and research hospitals. We also support and invest in early-stage projects, where the probability of commercial success and potential total return on innovation are substantial. Another expanding focus for OCE is the development of the next generation of innovators through our entrepreneurship fellowships and programs for students and youth across Ontario.
The NRC is an agency of the Government of Canada, reporting to Parliament through the Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development. It is governed by a council of appointees drawn from its client community.
As a world-leading research organization, NRC is investing strategically in competencies and technology platforms that enable our researchers to remain ahead of the curve in their areas of specialty, while constantly scanning for emerging disciplines for possible future investment, to ensure ongoing relevance and value to Canadian industry.
