National Research Council Canada – Germany

The NRC in Germany is a point of entry for researchers and businesses in Germany who are interested in research and development (R&D) collaborations with the NRC, or with innovative Canadian companies.

Why work with us

The NRC has the mandate to take research from the lab to the marketplace, where it can enhance people's lives and address some of the world's pressing challenges.

We are at the intersection of academia, industry, and government. With 14 research centres covering numerous disciplines and technologies, we:

  • encourage research excellence
  • engage with the ecosystems that bring together scientific knowledge, innovation support, and industrial capabilities
  • expand the ways we help companies grow and scale
  • develop the people and skills that will drive the next decades of discovery

We can work with you to develop new technologies, and through our extensive network across Canada, introduce you to innovative companies developing solutions to your problems.

Canadian small to medium-size companies interested in collaborations with Germany should refer to our National Research Council Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC IRAP).

Canadian organizations may also receive support from Global Affairs Canada.

Pursuing studies and research with us

Starting in 2021, the National Research Council of Canada, in cooperation with MITACS and RWTH Aachen University, will offer 25 positions for RWTH Aachen students to conduct combined research stays at a Canadian partner university for a duration of 6 to 12 months. Interested Master's students, and Doctoral candidates at RWTH Aachen can consult the program website for details on how to apply.
