Up to £2.5m available for UK-Canada collaboration for High Value Manufacturing and Artificial Intelligence Supported Design
Posted on 28/11/2018
A new business led collaboration between UK and Canada has been announced by Innovate UK as part of UKRI, the National Research Council Canada (NRC) and Industrial Research Assistance Programme (IRAP).
A combined investment of £5m between the two countries will be available for both large and small companies to develop or deploy commercially viable High Value Manufacturing (HVM) and Artificial Intelligence Supported Design products and services.
In order to form collaborative partnerships, Innovate UK intends to provide funding to take selected UK organisations on a mission to the Toronto area in February or March 2019 (dates to be confirmed). Express your interest to take part here.
Funding will be available for business-led Collaborative R&D (CR&D) projects, allowing UK and Canadian partners to develop innovative ideas to be exploited in large global markets.
Innovating with Canada provides opportunities for UK businesses to:
(1) co-develop and supply innovative goods and services into the larger companies that drive the Canadian economy;
(2) increase their own technological abilities and productivity within the UK; and
(3) form strong relationships with Canadian partners to access global business opportunities jointly.
Full details about the competition and the Canadian mission can be found in the webinar recording which you can access here.
