ACCELERATE: This program gives companies (Canadian or having one operation in Canada) a competitive advantage by connecting them with high-quality research expertise. Through Mitacs-Accelerate, graduate students (Master, PhDs, and postdoctoral fellows) from over 50 universities apply their specialized expertise to business research challenges. Armed with the very latest tools, techniques, and innovations, the intern brings a new perspective to the problem faced by the industry partner. For each 4 month internship, both Mitacs and the company partner contribute $7,500. The company can pile up as many 4 month long internships as needed for the project. Applications are accepted any time. ELEVATE: Mitacs Elevate helps organizations, in a 2 year project, build their business with support from top-ranked, highly trained research talent. Participating post-doctoral fellows work closely with partner organizations to understand their business needs and apply research principles to address these needs. Partner organizations provide $30,000, and Mitacs provides $30,000, for a total research grant of $60,000 per year. This program is competitive, two calls per year.
