Techcouver: Innovate BC Partners With Mitacs To Drive COVID-19 Business Solutions

Mitacs and Innovate BC are partnering to fast-track solutions to COVID-19 while mitigating the pandemic’s adverse economic impacts to business.

The partnership support comes in the form of 100 Mitacs internships for COVID-19-specific projects, funded by a $375,000 investment from Innovate BC.

The funding infusion from Innovate BC coupled with Mitacs’s leveraged funds offsets the standard company-partner contribution towards the intern’s stipend and increases access to research during this pandemic.

This funding will be distributed through the Mitacs Accelerate program and will provide eligible projects with $15,000 in total funding to support the intern’s stipend.
