NSERC Applied Research and Development Grants (ARD) are designed to give innovative Canadian companies access to the knowledge, expertise and capabilities available at Humber. They support well-defined applied research and development projects undertaken by college researchers with their private-sector partners. The mutually beneficial projects are expected to result in economic benefits to the (for-profit) company and to Canada.

Come to our workshop and discover the simplified application and decision processes that will enable funding for your applied research project. This interactive and hands-on workshop series will acquaint participants with the process of applying for ARD grants. Participants will come away from the workshops with a greater sense of confidence and an understand of what it takes to be successful.
