Application process: No application needed- funds will be allocated on a first-come basis as external grant applications are submitted.

Funding opportunities

SSHRC Partnership Engage Grants provide short-term and timely support for partnered research activities that will inform decision-making at a single partner organization from the public, private, or not-for-profit sector. Partnership Engage Grants are valued at $7,000 to $25,000 for one year. Please note that these grants do not cover faculty release or backfill. IDEAWORKS is currently supporting applications with an internal deadline of December 15, 2022.

Funding is available for Health and Eng Tech faculty interested in working with an industry partner on a health innovation project as part of the Southern Ontario Pharmaceutical and Health Innovation Ecosystem (SOPHIE).  Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.

Planning is underway for Canada Foundation for Innovation College Fund applications for 2023 and 2024. The College Fund supports projects that enhance the capacity of Canadian colleges to carry out applied research and technology development and foster partnerships that generate innovative products, processes or services that address the social, business, health or environmental needs of a Canadian industry or community. A limited number of opportunities are available for colleges each year to apply to this fund. If your research team will benefit from this funding, please contact Gregor MacLean.
