Government of Canada Announces Stream 4 of the Strategic Innovation Fund

The Government of Canada has announced Stream 4 of the Strategic Innovation Fund and that Statements of Interest will be accepted until August 31, 2018. 

Part of the broader Strategic Innovation Fund that was announced in late February 2018 in the federal budget, Stream 4 seeks to enable large scale projects/proposals applying data capabilities in the health and biosciences sector.

Canadians working at the intersection of data and the health and biosciences sector are breaking new ground and advancing world-changing innovations. Through this new Strategic Innovation Fund competition, our government will invest in the most promising projects that will turn those innovations into well-paying jobs for Canadians. This is how, with the Strategic Innovation Fund, we’re investing in innovation today for the jobs of tomorrow.
