INOVAIT Spring 2021 Funding Round

How to Apply: 
INOVAIT is pleased to announce its upcoming Canada-wide call for applications from industry and academic members for its first open round of pilot funding for collaborative research and development projects in the image-guided therapy (IGT) and artificial intelligence (AI) space. The application period will open on Monday, March 8.

INOVAIT is a new pan-Canadian network funded by the Government of Canada and hosted at the Sunnybrook Research Institute with the objective of strengthening Canada’s leadership in the IGT sector by supporting and encouraging collaborative development and the integration of AI and data advances into medical technologies.

In this upcoming round of funding, INOVAIT is looking to provide short-term pilot R&D projects in AI and IGT with up to $125,000 in matching funds. The most promising projects will then be eligible for follow-on funding of equal or greater amounts for three subsequent years. This competition is open to Canadian corporations, academic institutions, and not-for-profit organizations; however, each project requires two or more Canadian partners and must actively involve at least one Canadian small and medium enterprise (SME). Applications must be submitted no later than April 15, 2021.

Application forms and guidelines, as well as more information, are available online at  

If you do not have a partner meeting the competition’s criteria, contact us by email at and we will help you identify one.
