Connect Canada

Internship Program

The AUTO21 Inc. Connect Canada internship program is a federal Industrial Research and Development Internship (IRDI) program administered by the Networks of Centres of Excellence (NCE) Secretariat.

Connect Canada matches graduate students and post-doctoral fellows with private sector host organizations for private sector research internships. The interns will work on research projects jointly developed by their academic supervisor and the private sector host.

The goal of the program is to introduce graduate students and post-doctoral fellows to practical business problems and provide them with the opportunity to apply their scientific and technical expertise to address the needs of participating businesses, as well as to create a vehicle that will facilitate increased private investment in research and development. The program is open to all research areas. Download the Program Guide [.pdf].
