ISTPCanada Announces Funding to Build Partnerships between Canadian and Brazilian Companies, and Generate at Least $10 Million in Collaborative R&D

Publicado em 10 novembro 2009

International Science and Technology Partnerships Canada (ISTPCanada) today announced the launch of three Canada-Brazil Calls for Proposals (CFP) that aim to stimulate partnership development, collaborative research and development, and the joint commercialization of new technologies.

Leveraging investment from the Governments of Canada and Brazil, ISTPCanada and FAPESP (São Paulo Research Foundation) will inject critical funds into small- to medium-sized and established companies that aspire to seize new global market opportunities, and generate collaborative R&D
valued at a minimum of $10 million.

As part of this bilateral R&D program, ISTPCanada and FAPESP will invite joint proposals in critical sectors such as information and communications technologies (ICT), life sciences and energy. These initiatives will help Canadian and Brazilian companies to leverage scientific expertise in the partner country, identify business development opportunities and access new market channels. More broadly, they will help Canada and Brazil to exploit global S&T partnerships to stimulate innovation, foreign investment and trade in a post-recession economy.
