Description: LeverageR&D is an academic-led program that attracts research and development (R&D) investments in priority areas where the majority of funds are coming from non-provincial, public funding sources.

Application Details: LeverageR&D provides up to a maximum of 50 percent of total eligible costs of a specific project, with a maximum RDC investment of $500,000. RDC may consider projects that exceed the maximum contribution where the proposal warrants the investment. Priority consideration will be given to projects with greater leveraging. Preference is given to projects with a direct and indirect leverage ratio of 1:5 (RDC : Non-RDC). Proposed R&D projects must enhance R&D capacity and have significant potential for economic impact in Newfoundland and Labrador. Priority projects are those that align with industry needs and development opportunities. Through the LeverageR&D program, RDC targets investments in the following areas: energy, ocean technology, natural resources (minerals & mining, fisheries, aquaculture, forestry, and agriculture), manufacturing, health and life sciences, and information and communication technologies.
