Research Innovation Grants

Offered throughout the year, Research Innovation Grants are announced using the University’s Research Alerts system.

Some of the current opportunities include:

Gryphon's LAAIR Grants

Made possible by the OMAFRA-UofG Partnership, Gryphon's LAAIR Grants are ideal for identifying target markets and testing concepts with end users. There are two streams of Gryphon's LAAIR funding offered:

  • Market Research funds are aimed at understanding customer wants, needs and the constraints of the marketplace.
  • Product Development funds help you build the best products, services or technologies to solve a problem or create value.
