Technical Assistance Program

Helping life science companies to tackle their technical challenges

TAP allows life sciences SMEs to apply for small project funding to engage technical expertise that is not available within their company. The technical expertise received is intended to allow the company to overcome an immediate challenge that is acting as a barrier to commercialization.

This program provides direct financial assistance for approved projects that seek to resolve an issue that is hampering product development, and is critical to commercialization. Projects that will be considered include those that engage a subject matter expert to help with:

  • a science and / or an engineering challenge
  • experiment design
  • prototype development advice
  • other assistance of a technical nature that cannot be solved with in-house expertise.

*This program cannot address business, marketing or administrative challenges and is for BioNova members only

*Eligibility criteria apply
