WHAT IS AVIN?
AVIN (Autonomous Vehicle Innovation Network) brings together industry, academia, and governments to capitalize on the economic opportunities of Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (C/AV), while supporting the province's transportation systems and infrastructure in adapting to these emerging technologies.
WHAT IS A REGIONAL TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT SITE?
A core part of AVIN are Regional Technology Development Sites (RTDSs), of which CITM is 1 of 6 located across the province, that enable Ontario-Based small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) to develop, prototype, and validate new technologies, access specialized equipment (hardware and software), and obtain business and technical advice in the autonomous and connected vehicle sector.
Each site supports the development of new technologies and has a unique focus area:

AV R&D PARTNERSHIP FUND
Stream 1 supports projects of up to one year in duration, with up to $100,000 in funding - which must be matched at a minimum of 1:1 by the applicant - to be used towards the development and demonstration of technologies in the Connected and Autonomous Vehicle (C/AV) sector.
The Talent Development stream provides funding for company- or institution-based interns and fellows who are currently enrolled in, or recently graduated from, publicly-funded Ontario colleges and universities to gain real-world industry experience that solve industry problems related to Connected and Autonomous Vehicle (C/AV) technologies.
The AVIN Technology Demonstration Zone, located in Stratford, Ontario, is a site where Ontario-based companies with connected and automated vehicle (C/AV) technologies can test, validate and showcase innovative products. The call for technology has opened.
