The Canada Council for the Arts has recently announced funding for its Digital Generator and Digital Greenhouse Programs. Digital Generator is a short-term initiative to allow Canadian arts groups, collectives, and organizations to build their digital capacity and transform their business model and operations. Digital Greenhouse is a digital innovation initiative for Canadian individuals, groups, and organizations. It supports short-term projects that leverage digital technology to address sectoral and digital challenges. Grant applicants must meet the eligibility set by the Canada Council for the Arts. Applied researchers may work with artists and other organizations as external consultants, experts, or training providers. If you have a project that you think would benefit from this funding, please contact Andrea Johnson.
Funding is available for 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. If you have a project that you think would benefit from this funding, please contact Andrea Johnson.
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 for March 15, 2022, and June 15, 2022. If you have a project that you think would benefit from this funding, please contact Andrea Johnson.
Funding is available from OCI’s Voucher for Innovation and Productivity. This program supports the collaboration between Academia and Industry to solve an industry-based problem and drive the commercialization of Intellectual Property [IP]. The institution will leverage the unique skills and specialized infrastructure that is instrumental to streamline internal innovations and commercialization needs. Resulting in targeted training of individuals and direct engagement with industry to work on commercially viable solutions. If you have a project that you think would benefit from this funding, please contact Andrea Johnson.
Do you need IDEAWORKS’s assistance in preparing your funding application? Be sure to plan in advance! While we’re always available to answer any questions you may have, we have very limited internal capacity until December.

McMaster University researchers in Materials Science and Engineering wanted to produce titanium-iron alloy via additive manufacturing (AM) that was historically difficult to produce via traditional manufacturing methods. Mohawk College’s Additive Manufacturing Innovation Centre (AMIC) worked with them to develop process parameters for their high-powered laser AM system to easily produce components utilizing this alloy.
