Innovation paves the road to success in the new global economy.

The Synergy Awards for Innovation were launched in 1995 by NSERC to recognize partnerships in natural sciences and engineering research and development (R&D) between universities and Canadian industry.

In 2014 a category for colleges was added. Since their inception, the Awards have honoured the most outstanding achievements of these collaborations in the natural sciences and engineering.

By working together, award-winning companies and post-secondary institutions have proven that effective partnerships are the foundation of achievement.

Their success has enriched the academic and research programs within Canadian post-secondary institutions while providing tangible benefits to Canadians.
