How to Apply


Applications must be jointly submitted by a Principle Investigator from any SOSCIP Consortium member institution and their industry partner.

Completed applications will be evaluated by the SOSCIP Scientific Advisory Committee based on eligibility, suitability, technology, scientific and commercial merits.

Where appropriate, we will help you determine the best funding program (eg NSERC, Mitacs, OCE) for the needs of your project and industry partner.

Preference will be given to projects that:

  • Demonstrate close industry-academic R&D collaboration with an economic benefit to Ontario.
  • Demonstrate an innovative approach to solving an important social, business or technical challenge.
  • Include training opportunities and skills development for highly qualified personnel (post-secondary, graduate students and post-doctoral fellows).
  • Demonstrate a need for advanced computing resources and demonstrate the collaborative team has the expertise to carry out the technical components.
  • Anticipate tangible deliverables in the form of new technologies, new processes, significant skills transfer, job creation, or other downstream benefits to society.
