Going Global Innovation (GGI)

Going Global Innovation (GGI) is a contribution program created and managed by Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada's Trade Commissioner Service to stimulate international research and development (R&D) partnerships that benefit Canadian innovators. The program is designed to solidify an international partnership for future R&D collaboration to co-develop a technology or a product that has a potential for commercialization.

The grant program is open to Canadian researchers from Canadian SMEs, Canadian post-secondary institutions and Canadian non-governmental research or innovation centres (all must be based in Canada). Applicants must have a science and technology project targeted for R&D discussions during their meetings with the foreign partners (details are required in the application). The GGI program provides $5,000 to $75,000 to support in-person discussions, meetings and related activities to solidify a global R&D partnership.
