International Science and Technology Partnerships
Canada Inc., (ISTP Canada), and Brazilian partners,
together with the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), are
hosting Calls for Proposals (CFP) for industry-led collaborative R&D
projects between Canada and Brazil. A summary is provided
The Call invite companies from Canada and Brazil to propose bilateral R&D projects for the joint development of innovative products or processes. Academic institutions, research hospitals, other
institutes, or research associations are strongly encouraged to participate in the projects as co-investigators.
The CFP aim to stimulate innovative R&D cooperation that address a specific market need or challenge; demonstrate high commercial potential; and deliver benefit to all applicants, and more broadly, to both countries.
ISTPCanada and its partners will accept quality applications in the following sectors:
- Information and Communication Technologies (ICT)
- Ocean Science and Technology

- Green Energy and Clean Technologies
On the Canadian side, funding recipients are eligible to receive up to a maximum of CDN $400,000 or up to 50 percent of the total R&D project value.
