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 and/or publicly-funded post-secondary institution).
Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE) will administer OJIRDP on behalf of MRIS. More details
