Posted on Tuesday, March 29, 2022

3P Grant

The University of Ottawa Faculty of Medicine Research Office is pleased to launch the second round of the Path for Patenting & Pre-commercialization (3P) grant. The goal is to support early-stage health/biomedical research and innovation through proof-of concept and beyond, providing opportunities to patenting and commercialization.

Applicants must be active Faculty members with a primary academic appointment in the Faculty of Medicine. Projects must meet criteria for TRL (Technology Readiness Level) >3. Application details are in the attached Terms of Reference.

The funding is intended for 1) key experiments needed for intellectual property protection and potential commercialization, 2) assessment of potential market access and 3) development of a commercialization plan (if ready).  

Applications will be evaluated by a committee of academic and industrial experts.

Three projects will be selected for funding. The maximum grant amount to be awarded to each project is $15K, with a potential 1:1 match if the research is done within uOttawa affiliated research institutes. In addition, the funding can be leveraged via a Mitacs application with support from the Research Office in partnership with an external partner (industrial or non-profit) to fund a student or Postdoc and thus maximize the award amount (up to $60K).

Researchers interested in applying to the 3P grant can contact Mohamad Sobh, Research Advisor at the Faculty of Medicine to discuss any questions or potential eligibility before applying.

Applications should be submitted to Mohamad Sobh

  • Deadline for submission: 5:00 PM on May, 9 2022
