Comments on Funding:
Funding from OSC matches up to 1:1 the Industry Member cash and in-kind contributions.
There is no minimum or maximum project size, but OSC co-investments will likely support projects that range in size from $0.5M to $20M.
At a project level, government funding can cover up to 100% of eligible costs.
The TL Pojects must meet the following requirements:
Applicants must be OSC Industry Members. OSC Industry members are for-profit, or non-for-profit organizations that receive their funding primarily through the private sector and are registered in Canada.
Applicants must go through 5 steps:
Preliminary Qualification: The Project Team will complete the TL Project Preliminary Qualification Template to demonstrate that their project idea is well formed and meets these eligibility criteria before it can be qualified and advanced to full proposal.
Proposal Development: Once a project is qualified, the Project Team can develop a proposal by completing the TL Project Proposal Template. Proponents can socialise the proposal to other OSC Members and expand the Project Team during this stage.
Proposal Assessment and Selection: The Project Proposal is submitted to OSC, who confirms that it is complete and ready to be submitted for assessment. The TL Project Proposal is evaluated.
- complete the TL Project Preliminary Qualification Template,
- develop a proposal by completing the TL Project Proposal Template, including a comprehensive Project Plan, as well as rationale that demonstrates how the proposed project would create opportunities for Members – including Members who are not participating in any project, to access expected Foreground Intellectual Property arising from the project,
- sign the Project Agreement, if the project is selected for funding.
