For More Information
INOVAIT is a new pan-Canadian network funded by the Government of Canada and hosted at the Sunnybrook Research Institute with the objective of strengthening Canada’s leadership in the image-guided therapy (IGT) sector by supporting and encouraging collaborative development and the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) and data advances into medical technologies.
On March 8, 2021, INOVAIT will be launching the application period for its Spring 2021 round of funding. They are looking to provide short-term pilot R&D projects in AI and IGT with up to $125,000 in matching funds. The most promising projects will then be eligible for follow-on funding of equal or greater amounts for three subsequent years. This competition is open to Canadian corporations, academic institutions, and not-for-profit organizations; however, each project requires two or more Canadian partners and must actively involve at least one Canadian small and medium enterprise (SME).
