A new round of call for Expression of Interest has been announced by the Ontario Centres of Excellence and Alberta Innovates Technology Futures. As you might be aware, WISE has been working with a few of our members on an application for compressed-air energy sotrage research in the last funding round of this program, which has now moved to the NSERC CRD application stage. I encourage you to explore this opportunity. I am happy to discuss details and our experience with this program with you, and facilitate any initiative/application process. You may contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org

Program submission instructions:
OCE is pleased to be launching Round 2 of the Alberta-Ontario Innovation Program in partnership with Alberta Innovates Technology Futures (AITF) and the Governments of Alberta and Ontario.
This program supports inter-provincial industry-academic projects focussed on solving challenges facing key industries in both provinces. Funded by AITF and OCE, the program will leverage contributions from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) and industry partners.
The program is valued at up to $12 million in total, and supports academic institutions and businesses in both provinces to collaborate in the development and commercialization of innovative products and services. It will support innovation in the priority areas of advanced materials and manufacturing, energy and environment (including water), nanotechnology, agriculture, forestry, advanced health technologies, life sciences, biotechnology, information, communications technology and digital media.
This is an exciting opportunity for academic institutions and companies to participate in this unique collaboration between Alberta and Ontario.
More information on this program, including full guidelines and application criteria, is available at www.oce-ontario.org/albertaontario.
