International: NRC's Global Reach

Flags of the World

Canada's participation in international Science & Technology (S&T) is vital for the nation to gain access to the S&T knowledge and information it needs to succeed in the new economy.

This global reach improves the quality of knowledge produced by Canadian researchers. It creates access to the world's best S&T facilities, equipment and talent. It provides vital access to the knowledge produced by researchers in other nations, a necessity for Canada and Canadian businesses. And it opens doors for Canadian firms to access the technology opportunities and information they need to remain competitive.

Funding Guide for International Science and Technology Cooperation


The international scientific research community has always cooperated across borders. Most of this cooperation occurs informally, researcher-to-researcher. Given the enormous benefits generated by these informal international partnerships, NRC has actively pursued international research partnerships and alliances on behalf of Canada. These efforts have produced significant results for all sectors of the Canadian economy.

Global Reach: At Work on the World Stage

Hosted over 194 foreign delegations.


Organized over 160 international conferences and workshops.


109 Formal collaborative research agreements signed with international partners.




NRC plays a leading role in providing Canada with strategic S&T information, intelligence and connections to centres of advanced S&T around the world. NRC has created valuable international linkages and networks that help transfer S&T information back to Canadian firms, universities and public sector partners, and also generate new business opportunities for Canadian SMEs.
