Mitacs Accelerate InDev internships expand the scope of the Mitacs Accelerate program.  They are not designed for research projects, but for collaborative projects with industry that advance or significantly improve new products, processes, materials, systems or services.  If your proposed project includes novel investigation (ie research), please apply for a standard Mitacs Accelerate internship here
