Competition objectives

The purpose of the Onco-Tech competition is to fund cancer-related, high potential medical technology projects. In addition to the scientific innovation and excellence components, the project will have to demonstrate that it meets a clear clinical need and represents an obvious advantage over options currently available to patients. The funding will help develop the technology beyond the concept phase towards validation and technology transfer, thus facilitating access to funding from industry partners.

Projects may include:

  • Diagnostic technologies (biomarkers and others)

  • Imaging and simulation (diagnostic, for surgery purposes, staff training)

  • Information technology and communication (mobile applications, mega-data applications, personalized medicine)

  • Rehabilitation technologies and other enabling technologies (bioMEMS, biomaterials, plastics/polymers and nanotechnologies)

Please consult the Program Guidelines

**New Excel form available to validate co-funding plan**

An Excel form is now available to help better determine the exact contribution required from the industrial partner as well as the detailed co-funding plan matching the budget for the proposed project. You can download the attached Excel form. It will ease discussions with your research team.
