Released on January 14, 2020Advanced Education Minister Tina Beaudry-Mellor announced a $400,000 grant to advance research and increase international business opportunities in Saskatchewan.
The internship funding will flow through two programs administered by Mitacs, a national not-for-profit research and development organization that specializes in the commercialization of cutting-edge technologies.
Since 2007, Saskatchewan has invested nearly $3 million in the Mitacs Accelerate and Globalink programs. With federal funding and industry contributions, a total of $13.3 million has been invested in Saskatchewan’s economy. To date, this investment has supported 508 internships and research opportunities. Mitacs funded an additional 417 students through its own resources.
“One of our goals is to promote this province as a top research and education destination,” Beadry-Mellor said. “This will open the door for innovators and entrepreneurs to settle in Saskatchewan.”
Saskatchewan’s Growth Plan includes a focus on securing access and expanding international markets for Saskatchewan technology and products.
