Why Partner?

The face of innovation is changing: forty years ago, innovation occurred in isolation, with large corporate labs responsible for product and process innovation. Today, innovation in top consumer products and technologies occurs thanks to collaboration between public and private sector, and between colleges, universities and companies.

NSERC is committed to keeping Canada in the lead in the global race in science and innovation. Our national network and our expertise with the research community can be a bridge to help you access Canada’s wealth of R&D knowledge, people and facilities, and use the academic research system as a competitive edge.
