Innovative Solutions Canada is now accepting applications!

INNOVATORS, ARE YOU READY?
Innovative Solutions Canada is now accepting applications!

Innovative Solutions Canada is a new $100 million hybrid procurement program setting out to foster partnerships between the Government of Canada and small business innovators. In search of novel solutions to challenges, the program will support small business innovators by funding cutting-edge research and the development of technology and products. Phases of the program are as follows:

PHASE 1 - If your solution is selected, you could receive up to $150,000 (up to 6 months) in funding towards developing your solutions as a proof of concept.

PHASE 2 - With a successful concept, you could receive up to $1 million (up to 2 years) in funding to support prototype development.

PHASE 3 - Now that you have a working prototype, your small business is on the pathway to commercialization of the product and the federal government could be your first buyer.
 
We have challenges. You have opportunities.
 
See below for our first set of challenges that are open for proposed solutions from innovative entrepreneurs:

•    Connected Vehicle and Engineered Surfaces Challenge
Sponsoring department: Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada
This challenge seeks novel solutions that incorporate Frequency Selected Engineered Surfaces (FSES) technology into connected vehicle designs as a means to move towards wireless connectivity within vehicles, and as a tool to manage interference emanating from vehicles into other vehicles, and into the overall urban environment.
•    Engineered Surfaces Challenge
Sponsoring department: Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada
This challenge seeks novel solutions that incorporate the use of Frequency Selective Engineered Surfaces (FSES) in the research and development of new building materials, construction products and design tools using FSES tuned to operate in the below 6GHz (potentially addressing the WiFi interference issue) and above 24GHz range (potentially addressing the issues of radio frequency propagation).
