Your online guide to project applications

Want to understand NGen’s application process, from putting together a proposal through project screening and assessment?

These rules and more are contained in NGen’s Application Guide, a straight-to-the-point description of how projects get funded, now available online at

The Guide will take prospective applicants through the Supercluster funding process. It explains the kinds of projects NGen will fund. It provides detail on how to answer the 10 questions asked of every proposal.

And the Guide contains links to the project plan, financial workbook and other documents that must be submitted with each initial application.

A reminder that all partners in a project must be members of NGen. Membership in the NGen Supercluster is free. You can join here.

Robotics. Sensors.
3D printing. Data.

New technologies and platforms are rewiring the way we make things, inspiring better products and new industries.

That’s advanced manufacturing.

NGen connects.

Canada’s advanced manufacturing network is a constellation of industrial companies and start-ups, researchers and investors, government-funded labs and more.

We use data to bring these assets together, promoting collaboration that unlocks new opportunities.

Meeting global competition head on.

New competitors are emerging – and using advanced technologies to gain an edge.

NGen answers that challenge, accelerating the creation and adoption of new technologies so Canadian companies can be global leaders.

Greater prosperity.
A better world.

Manufacturing stokes Canada’s economy. The shift to advanced manufacturing will enrich all our lives through better products, higher value jobs and sustainable economic growth.
