Now accepting applications
In response to COVID-19 pandemic, Mitacs is allowing participants to work from home (no need to travel for international partners), as long as research partners are able to connect and carry out the research methodologies virtually.
If it’s not feasible to work remotely given the structure of the work, you can put your project on hold for future (up to 12 months). We encourage you to plan ahead of time and secure the funding for the overseas exchange opportunities.
