The Prize consists of the reimbursement of expenses incurred for a trip to Canada up to a maximum of €3,000 to meet the Canadian partner and develop the project. In recent editions, the Prize has met with great success with a growing number of applications from all over Italy and characterized by a high scientific-academic level.
