This program will be administered by OCE and delivered in partnership with CONII. This program is modelled after MRI’s Ontario Research and Commercialization Program A and B.The project funding will be divided into two components: the Diagnostic Assessments and Proof-of-Principle projects. The former intends to evaluate promising industry-college applied-research project possibilities to choose those worthy of being funded through the latter. This program will be administered by OCE and delivered in partnership with CONII. This program is intended to supplement core funding for CONII members’ research, technology transfer and industry liaison offices. The colleges and CONII must maintain their commitment to existing research/technology transfer/industry liaison office budgets.With regards to funding. In this transition year, we will continue to meet our existing funding commitments. Funding will be tight during this transition year.
