Neuro Commercialization Grants

The Neuro Commercialization Grants aim to accelerate the maturation and commercialization of neuroscience-related technology derived from research conducted at McGill. Ignite Grants represent the first of two phases in the HBHL Neuro Commercialization Grants program and their objective is to support small-scale validation/proof-of-principle efforts in the development of a neuroscience-related technology. Read more about this program and the evaluation process.
