Lunch & Learn
Time: 12:00 – 1:30 p.m.
Date: Thursday, May 10, 2018
Location: Red River College

About the Event:
A representative from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) will explain how to leverage federal funding through Engage Grants, which provide up to 6-month and $25,000 in industry-researcher collaboration. Other NSERC programs and offerings will also be briefly detailed.

A representative from the Office of Small & Medium Enterprises will then provide a brief overview of the Build in Canada Innovation Program (BCIP), which helps companies bridge the pre-commercialization gap by procuring and testing late stage innovative goods and services within the federal government before taking them to market.

We will aim to provide ample time for Q&A and discussion from participants, to make this session as useful as possible for you.

This event is being organized by the Research Partnerships & Innovation office at Red River College in collaboration with the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada and Public Services and Procurement Canada.
