LeverageR&D supports academic-led research that attracts R&D investments in priority areas where the majority of funds are coming from non-provincial, public funding sources.

This program targets publicly-funded academic or not-for-profit research institutes and facilities in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Proposed R&D projects must enhance R&D capacity and have significant potential for economic impact in Newfoundland and Labrador. Applicants must also demonstrate that there is a need for RDC’s investment, whether as a requirement of the other funding source or when the total available funds from other sources are not sufficient to execute the project scope.
