Agri-Based Industrial Bioproducts R&D Challenge

Agri-Based Industrial Bioproducts R&D Challenge

The Agricultural Adaptation Council (AAC) is excited to be partnering with the Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE), and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) to support collaborative research and development projects through OCE’s Voucher for Industry Association R&D Challenge Program.

The Agri-Based Industrial Bioproducts (ABIB) R&D Challenge is a $3-million program that supports Ontario’s developing industrial bioproducts sector. The program encourages for-profit businesses with innovative industrial bioproduct ideas (any commercial product derived from agricultural sources) to collaborate with academic research institutions to foster innovation and drive commercialization. It is intended to provide significant economic benefits to Ontario (jobs, revenues etc.) by supporting the development of the next generation of agri-based industrial bioproducts.
