Canada and Germany have long-lasting cooperation in science and research and, in December 2017, signed a Joint Declaration of Intent to recognize the existing partnerships between both countries and commit to more collaborations on research and development (R&D), and technological innovation initiatives. As part of this commitment, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), the National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC IRAP), and the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) initiated a unique partnership and, in January 2018, launched a successful joint call for proposals on Industry 4.0 and Advanced Manufacturing.
