Ontario Centres of Excellence is seeking applications for a program that supports early-stage, ground-breaking medical science research projects.
Under the Medical Sciences Proof-of-Principle program, applicants are eligible for up to $70,000 for commercialization activities. New industry matching cash contributions are required.
The MSc PoP program helps commercialize promising life sciences and medical technology intellectual property (IP) developed at Ontario publicly funded academic research institutions (universities, colleges, and research hospitals). The goal is to deliver economic benefits to Ontario, including sales and jobs, through newly created Ontario-based companies founded on this IP, or by licensing the IP to an existing Ontario-based company.
OCE is accepting applications up until July 30, 2015. Applications may be submitted at any time and are evaluated in accordance with the Application Submission Deadlines.
All potential applicants should see OCE’s website for full details about the MSc PoP program before applying.
