Idea to Innovation (I2I) Grants

The objective of the Idea to Innovation (I2I) Grants is to accelerate the pre-competitive development of promising technology originating from the university and to promote its transfer to a new or established Canadian company.

Four distinct funding options are available, which are characterized by the maturity of the technology or the involvement of an early-stage investment entity or an industrial partner. Please contact SFU Industry Engagement to discuss development of the proposal.

NSERC accepts applications every 3 months (January, April, July and October).  Please check website to confirm future final due dates.
