During the CBIE conference in Ottawa, a new bilateral initiative between Norway and Canada was signed. The goal is to increase collaboration in higher education, research and innovation.
The agreement between Mitacs and SIU will create new opportunities for Norwegian and Canadian graduate students to carry out joint research projects and strengthen international research collaborations between leading industry and academic organizations. Graduate students from eligible higher education institutions in Norway and Canada have the opportunity to participate in a research project with an industry partner located in the other country, with time also spent under an academic co-supervisor in the host country.
" Canada and Norway share many similarities and interests, and we believe that the partnership between SIU and Mitacs can help drive together cooperation between Canadian and Norwegian start-up communities in key areas such as technology, med-tech, and climate & environmental research", said Ambassador of Norway in Canada Anne Kari Hansen Ovind.
