Preparing a grant proposal is hard, time-consuming work. The funding guidelines are often quite complex, you need to secure an internal proposal approval, and the competition for available funding sources is big. With all these challenges, you want to make sure your grant proposal has more than a good chance to succeed. University research services provide valuable assistance to their researchers, but leveraging technical expertise of a partner like Quanser can give you an additional boost and increase the probability of getting the funding.

Researchers helping researchers

During the last three decades, Quanser worked and collaborated with other partners on research projects funded by The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC), Ontario Research Fund (ORF), and other federal and provincial research funding bodies, pioneering new technologies and innovations. Our research partners include academic institutions such as University of Toronto, University of Waterloo, McGill University, Western University, Toronto Rehabilitation Institute, as well as Litens Automotive and other industrial companies. The research projects Quanser participated in between 2005-2016 secured over 8 million dollars (CAD ) in funding.

We also worked closely with numerous academics, helping them securing funding for their research projects or proposals to enhance engineering education in controls, mechatronics and robotics.

Quanser was very supportive in helping me prepare a strong research proposal by sharing their expertise, and ensuring that I had all the necessary technical supporting documentation required for the proposal.
