Healthcare without Boundaries Colloquium

The Canadian Space Agency (CSA), in collaboration with the National Research Council Canada – Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC IRAP), is hosting a virtual Healthcare without Boundaries Colloquium. 

The Healthcare without Boundaries Colloquium will serve as a forum for the research community, industry, government and academia to learn more about the challenges and opportunities within the space health innovation ecosystem. Synergies of terrestrial and space health challenges will be explored. The industry will showcase projects recently funded by the CSA and the NRC IRAP and will raise awareness about current and future opportunities, offering an overview of the funding mechanisms and pathways. Both the CSA and the NRC IRAP are committed to accelerating health technology research and development projects for the benefit of terrestrial and space communities.
