Innovate BC’s Ignite Program provides up to $300,000 to fund innovation projects in the areas of natural resources, applied science and/or engineering. Teams made up of industry and academia come together to solve real life business problems in a 3-year time frame. From helping get clean drinking water into third world countries to diagnosing eye diseases faster than ever before, Ignite is bringing technology to life in BC.
Ignite is looking for the highest potential research projects, closely partnered with industry, that are pre-commercial and require funding for further R&D to take their innovations to market.
