Whatever you need, we have the tools and expertise to help you innovate.
Mitacs is proud to work with small- and mid-sized companies to advance innovation in Canada. For smaller companies, doing research isn’t always simple. Projects and lab equipment are costly and it’s difficult to find and attract specialized talent. We understand what small businesses need to innovate.
That is why Mitacs provides competitive funding and access to top-ranking talent – so you can maximize your budget and apply specialized expertise to solve complex innovation challenges. If you collaborate on a project with a post-secondary student, your financial contribution can be as low as 45% of the cost of a project. Seize this opportunity and get ahead of the competition!
For many SMEs, some areas — like artificial intelligence — can appear more daunting than others. At Mitacs, we have developed a solution for SMEs to determine their readiness to adopt AI, to be able to work with world-leading AI experts and to do it in a cost-effective way. Companies will receive the support of artificial intelligence experts to undertake an eight-week project to evaluate their systems and discover real opportunities to use AI to achieve their business goals.
