Introduction To Mitacs Programmes

Date Wednesday, June 29, 2011

  1. Bosco will present opportunities for faculty and graduate students to learn more about Mitacs' programmes, in particular the Mitacs Accelerate programme, and how it can benefit researchers and students.

MITACS (www.mitacs.ca) is a national research network which, amongst its various goals, supports high quality university-based research and the training of highly qualified personnel (graduate students and Post-docs).

MITACS Accelerate sees graduate students or Post-Doctoral Fellows undertaking research internships (under their professor's guidance) with companies within Canada to develop new tools and techniques to address high-level industry issues. The intern balances their time on the project between the company and their university, and gains valuable industrial experience and an opportunity to apply their research to address novel issues.

MITACS has a proven track record of supporting leading research, while connecting Canadian businesses and organizations to the next generation of highly skilled knowledge workers. We help businesses and organizations easily access advanced university expertise so that they can develop and commercialize the products of tomorrow today.
