About Mitacs Globalink

Mitacs Globalink provided me a unique experience, where I could combine professional experience in a great research group at Carleton University with knowledge of a new country, new cultures and people from different countries. I reached the professional and personal improvement that I hoped for when I applied.

— Bruna Rodrigues, Globalink Research Intern, Carleton University



 One of the main strengths of Mitacs Globalink is it helps create a public awareness of how strong Canada is in research that’s globally relevant.

— John Sensinger, Associate director of Institute of Biomedical Engineering, University of New Brunswick
