Mitacs supports innovative organizations
adopting 5G technology
5G technology will impact every aspect of our lives, from communications and transportation to healthcare and even agriculture. And because it has 100x the data transmission speeds and 10-fold latency compared with 4G, 5G will accelerate the development of technologies such as AI, virtual reality, and connected objects (the Internet of Things).
For Canadian companies that want to benefit from 5G, the opportunities are huge.
The estimated economic impact of 5G deployment in Canada will reach $40 billion of annual GDP uplift by 2026, and 250,000 permanent jobs added to the Canadian economy in that time.
Qualified R&D experts, funding, and project management skills are essential to ensure innovative systems and products succeed in our hyperconnected world. But finding these key ingredients can be a challenge for Canadian small and medium enterprises (SMEs).
Mitacs can aid you in achieving your strategic goals and support your innovation projects. We can assist you in identifying your needs for your 5G projects, finding talent from the best academic institutions, and leveraging the ENCQOR 5G program — a program that gives you access to a 5G testbed, funding, and support for your projects.
The advantages to you
ENCQOR — a partnership between the Governments of Canada, Ontario and Quebec, and leading technology companies — will invest $400 million over five years to bring together a pre-commercial corridor of 5G wireless technologies in Ontario and Quebec.
