Check out some public funding opportunities available to Red River College (RRC) that we could help you accessing:
The Interactive Visits program is an initiative of Tech-Access Canada. Through this program, clients of the National Research Council of Canada – Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC – IRAP) are eligible for up to 20 hours of access to the equipment, facilities and expertise of our three Technology Access Centres (TACs): BETAC (building efficiency), Prairie Research Kitchen (culinary research), and TACAM (aerospace and manufacturing).
As part of the College and Community Innovation Program, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) offers the Engage Grant initiative. Engage Grants provide innovative companies that operate from a Canadian base with access to Red River College resources. The purpose of the grant is to stimulate partnership developments by supporting short-term research and development projects to address a company-specific problem. RRC can prepare an application to address your company’s need.
Applied Research Development (ARD) Grant
Also an NSERC initiative, the ARD Grant is a longer-term funding opportunity for well-defined research and development projects established between Red River College and private-sector organizations. The project’s length should range from one to three years, throughout which the partner would benefit from accessing RRC’s network of equipment, facilities and expertise.
Strategic Transformation & Applied Research Fund
The Strategic Transformation & Applied Research (STAR) Fund is an evolution from previous internal funding (PIF and CARD) at Red River College. The new fund aims to support broad range of activities at the College with emphasis on interdisciplinary and multi-department projects. The proposal must clearly demonstrate innovation, must be unique and/or have elements of strategic transformation.
