The Synergy Awards for Innovation honour outstanding university-industry research and development (R&D) partnerships in the natural sciences and engineering. Since 1995, the awards have showcased the benefits of pooling university and industry resources to make the most of Canadian research excellence and Canadian industrial expertise.

Winners of the Synergy Awards show effective use of human, technical and financial resources, and demonstrate a lasting partnership between university and industrial collaborators, with tangible commercial results.

The winner (principal nominee) in each category will receive a $200,000 NSERC research grant. Industrial partners will each receive a $30,000 voucher valid towards the cash portion of their required contribution in a new Collaborative Research and Development Grant (CRD).
