3 things that Mitacs can do for clean-tech businesses:
1) Connect them with researchers or a group that can address their specific challenge
2) Provide funding towards salary/stipend of the individual(s) on the project, and some ancillary funds for project costs if relevant.
3) Navigate the application process and ‘tricky’ issues such as IP ownership, what/when university publishing can occur, etc.
Examples of some past projects that have been funded: http://www.mitacs.ca/en/projects
This is a searchable database that not only allows you to see which companies have done Accelerate internships in the past but what they have worked on. You may sort by academic discipline, keyword, sector, etc.
