Ignite Awards by BC Innovation Council

Deadlines:

Letters of Interest accepted till
July 23, 2018

To accelerate the commercialization of new technologies and innovations in the natural resources and applied sciences in British Columbia, BCIC Ignite provides awards of up to $300,000 for industry-driven academic research projects that address a significant demonstrated problem faced by industry and provide significant benefits to British Columbia. The program aims to catalyze strategic academic-industry partnerships that have the capacity to commercialize the most promising innovations within a 3-year timeframe.

To be eligible, applicants must be a BC-based consortium comprised of two or more companies, organizations and academic researchers. At a minimum, the consortium must contain one academic member and one industry partner. A consortium must have the right academic, managerial, financial, and technological expertise to successfully bring their innovations from the research and development phase to market. A key criterion in the assessment of the project is that applicants have the right ‘Go-to-Market Consortium’. Ideally this includes representatives of the project’s full value chain from researchers, to suppliers, to end users.

GOING GLOBAL INNOVATION PROGRAM BY GLOBAL AFFAIRS CANADA

Apply anytime

The Going Global Innovation (GGI) program is specifically designed to promote and enhance Canada's international innovation efforts. The program supports researchers who aim to commercialize technology by pursuing collaborative international research and development (R&D) opportunities through partnerships with key players in foreign markets.

Who are the beneficiaries?
Eligible beneficiaries are Canadian innovators from small or medium size enterprises, universities and nongovernment research centres.

How does the funding work?
GGI provides assistance by contributing up to 75% of eligible expenses, up to a maximum of $75,000 for any approved project. Eligible expenses may include: international and local travel, accommodation, meals, meeting costs, legal fees to support formalized partnerships, and other costs related to international collaboration. Going Global Innovation supports project driven technology commercialization efforts and is not event driven. Only in very exceptional circumstances will GGI support conference fees. It must be clearly demonstrated to the Department that the meeting with a pre-confirmed foreign entity could not be held anywhere else in the world or at any other time.
