WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW 

As small and medium-size enterprises position themselves to take advantage of an increasingly robust economy, we know how critical it is to push ahead with research and innovation. That is why Mitacs connects you to funding and expertise — so you can get on with the important innovations that are vital to your business.

 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
