The College and Community Innovation (CCI) program’s Technology Access Centre (TAC) grants 2024 competition is now open.

Managed by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, in collaboration with the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, TAC grants provide funding for the core operations of TACs which are specialized centres of expertise intended to provide timely innovation support to a college’s community organizations from the private, public, health care or not-for-profit sectors.

TACs provide capabilities that serve their community organizations’ applied research and innovation needs. These capabilities may include advice on specific organizational challenges, applied research and/or development projects, or specialized services and training. These centres address innovation challenges by enabling the community organizations to take advantage of the college’s expertise, technology and equipment, leading to beneficial business, social and/or health outcomes for Canada.

Letters of Intent (LOI) must be submitted via the Convergence Portal by August 28, 2024 before 8:00 pm (Eastern Time). Please read the TAC grants description and LOI instructions for more information.
