  The Canada-California Strategic Innovation Partnership (CCSIP) is a catalyst for collaborative Research, Development and Delivery (RD&D) between two innovation-intensive jurisdictions: California, one of the most dynamic innovation engines on earth; and Canada, a leading country in university research intensity.
Far greater than the sum of its parts, CCSIP is a bilateral collaboration initiative that aims to capitalize on the complementary strengths of Canada and California, and to build on a well-established trade relationship valued at over US$28 billion in 2009.  CCSIP stimulates the:
  • Development of new models of collaboration between Canada and California that leverage key research capabilities, address common priorities, and accelerate the delivery of research results; and
  • Launch of revolutionary RD&D projects that aim to bring new products and services to market, and deliver economic and social benefits to citizens in both jurisdictions.
