Alberta’s high potential, high growth, technology and knowledge-based small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) may be eligible for up to $74,500 per year for up to two years to enable them to employ in-house professional research and development capability, to advance the Technology Readiness Level and accelerate new product commercialization.
The r&D Associate has the advanced technical skills required by the SME to make that last leap from research to a marketable product.
This 2 year program is designed to fund SMEs to employ an r&D professional through one of the following options:
- Level 1 – full-time, up to $52,500 per year
- Level 2 – full-time, up to $67,500 per year
Alberta Innovates will also provide an additional $7,000 per year as an expense allowance for the associate.See all programs of Alberta Innovates
