WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW 

As small and medium-size enterprises face increasing economic challenges, investing in innovation becomes even more important. That is why Mitacs connects you to funding and expertise — so you can continue to meet and exceed your research and development goals.

If your project requires anyone from a college student to a postdoc, Mitacs provides funding for SMEs, so your contribution can be as low as 45% of the cost of an innovation project. This applies to projects as short as 4 months, scalable to multi-year. You leverage your budget, meaning your money goes further!

Moreover, a two-year collaborative project with a postdoc⁠ — typically valued at $60K per year ⁠— is now enhanced to $80K a year if your research is in the fields of agriculture and food, artificial intelligence, biomanufacturing, clean technology, entertainment and media, quantum science, or social innovation.*
