How do I begin?

Contact us to get started. We’ll set up a consultation meeting and create your custom project plan.

Are projects restricted to the CAMIIT site?

No. Our research team can carry out testing, demonstrations, monitoring, and other projects off-site. We work with partners from across Ontario and Canada – contact us and we can make your project work.

How much will my project cost?

Fees vary depending on project type and length. Contact us for more information.

What funding is available?

We have several programs in place to help reduce project costs. Funding options can be explored during the initial consultation. Contact us to learn more about our funders as well as funding opportunities.

What happens with the intellectual property (IP) once my project is complete?

For most projects, the industry partner remains the sole owner of IP. Intellectual property allocation is discussed during the initial consultation and agreed upon before the project begins.

Who will be working on my project?

The Centre has a core staff of scientists and technicians. Our project managers and scientists will lead the project from start to finish. Occasionally students will assist with our research team. (Student participation may be required for certain types of funding.) All researchers sign non-disclosure agreements.
