Going Global Innovation

What Is Going Global Innovation?

  • GGI offers funding to support Innovators from Canadian organizations seeking foreign partners for the purpose of establishing a collaborative R&D agreement.
  • Our program gives up to $75,000 to help innovators who seek to co-develop, validate or adapt their technologies with the aim to commercialize.
  • GGI funds may be used to offset a variety of costs you may incur to meet and negotiate with targeted foreign collaborators.
  • Starting fiscal year 2019-2020, GGI is offered as both a grant and contribution funding program.  Eligibility for a grant or contribution will be assessed as part of the Formal Review phase of the Application Review Process.
