"The German-Canadian Centre for Innovation and Research (GCCIR) is able to provide research and information support for institutions and companies across Canada looking to enhance their knowledge of, or connections with, Germany and other European nations. Because the GCCIR administers the Alberta-Europe Technology Collaboration Fund on behalf of the Albertan Ministry of Economic Development and Trade, opportunities for funding and matchmaking missions associated with this program are available only to companies in Alberta."
