Maximize your potential by capitalizing on your R&D

Mitacs helps you take innovation from research to reality in your community.


For Canadian not-for-profit organizations, having a groundbreaking new technology or initiative is only half the battle — launching and implementing it within communities are essential for growth and success. Successfully connecting with your target community should be top of mind from the research and development (R&D) phase onwards.

What does your community want or need? Where does your innovation fit into the larger Canadian and global landscapes? And how will you get it there? Not-for-profits need to be nimble and well equipped enough to tackle these challenges, but many lack the resources, know-how and experience to take innovation from research to reality.
