The Ontario-Jiangsu Industrial Research and Development Program (OJIRDP) will support joint industrial R&D projects focusing on the development of products or processes that may lead to commercialization in global markets. A partnership of the Jiangsu Science and Technology Department (JSTD) and the Ontario Ministry of Research, Innovation and Science (MRIS), the OJIRDP will support projects leading to commercial success and socio-economic benefits for both jurisdictions. Applicants can apply for up to $150,000 in funding (inclusive of 20% overhead for academic applicants) for joint bilateral R&D projects with terms not exceeding three years, involving at least one Jiangsu company and one Ontario organization (company, university or research institution).
Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE) will administer OJIRDP on behalf of MRIS. More details
