Frequently Asked accelerate Questions

I am a student with a project idea but no industry partner. Can Mitacs help me find a company?

Mitacs works to connect industry with the most appropriate university expertise to solve challenges identified by the company.  With the large number of potential interns seeking industrial partners, Mitacs cannot offer individualized matching to a particular researcher however, you can consult our suggestions as to how to go about finding a partner company.

Can I complete my full internship at the University and interact with the company virtually?

Normally interns are expected to spend at least 50% of their internship with the company at their site(s).  If your host company is in a remote location or there are other unique circumstances that challenge the interaction, you may request flexibility for a lower ratio of interaction with the company.  Please consult with your business development representative while writing your proposal.  

Can I hold both an Accelerate and a tri-council (or provincially) funded studentship or fellowship?

Although Mitacs does not have any restrictions, many other granting agencies do not allow fellowship and studentship recipients to hold certain grants concurrently.  Please check with the relevant council or agency for current information regarding your specific grant prior to applying.

Can I do an internship with a research lab, NGO, Municipality, or Government agency?

The vast majority of Mitacs Accelerate Internships are funded in part by the national IRDI program, which limits industrial partners to privately owned or incorporated for-profit Canadian companies.  In some regions, there may be additional funding from other sources to support a limited number of partnerships with not-for-profit or government  entities.  Please contact a Business Development representative in your region to determine if such funding is available.

Study of Mitacs program outcomes reveals significant skills development, job creation, and retention of highly qualified personnel in Canada
23 April 2014
Vancouver, BC – Results from a longitudinal survey released this week by Mitacs Inc. demonstrate that Mitacs Accelerate benefits Canadian research and development as well as individual...

 From my perspective, the true value of the Mitacs-Accelerate internship is the individual relationships developed with people working for the industrial partner. Through the internship, although I became more familiar with methods, ideas, and technical issues related to my area of research, it was the networking experiences that I found to be most rewarding. I have no doubt that these relationships will continue to be of value throughout my career.
