Database of RTDI programmes

Looking for possibilities to collaborate with Canadian reseachers under Canadian research programmes?

The information on Canadian Research, Technology Development and Innovation (RTDI) programmes is valuable for both researchers and S&T managers (information multipliers, policy-makers etc). The programmes are open to European participation, though funding for European researchers is rarely available. Nevertheless, the programmes offer a broad spectrum of opportunities to collaborate with teams of excellent Canadian researchers. The S&T areas covered by these programmes are often of crucial importance for Europe as well. To date, the database contains 24 Canadian RTDI programmes. In the database, you can search by:

  • Country Name (select 'Canada'),
  • Programme Type (research, innovation, capacity building, indirect opport, or multipurpose),
  • Thematic Area (e.g. 'Environment', 'ICT', 'Energy' or 'Health'),
  • Key word.    

Go to database.

The Canadian RTDI programmes can also be found in the OPPORTUNITY REPORT 2011. This yearly report further contains a list of obstacles and impedances for participating under these programmes, as well as an overview of bilateral S&T agreements between Canada and individual European Member States.
