The program's first engagement activities have been completed and an initial group of projects has been identified. There will be ongoing future opportunities for Canadian and international universities, colleges, centres of excellence, not-for-profit organizations, governmental research organizations, and highly innovative firms with an interest in applying AI to scientific discovery and development to get involved.
Grant and contribution funding will be available through the NRC's National Program Office for eligible collaborators who offer complementary expertise. This may include contributions to collaborative R&D as well as equipment needed for research in fundamental areas.
