The Canadian Space Agency (CSA) has award six grants totalling $1.03 million to support industry-academia collaborative research.
According to the CSA “to be eligible, the projects had to have already received an NSERC Alliance grant for research on a topic related to one of the priorities identified in the Space Strategy for Canada or to further the research in the field of quantum technology.”
The six grants were:
