The Ontario-Jiangsu Industrial Research and Development Program (OJIRDP) supports 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 Ministry of Economic Development, Job Creation and Trade (MEDJCT), OJIRDP supports 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) manages OJIRDP on behalf of the Government of Ontario. More details
