COGNIT.CA was originally created by The U15 Group of Canadian Research Universities as part of a larger set of initiatives to increase the impact of Canadian university research. It is now developed in partnership with Universities Canada, collaboration with the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) and with the support of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), and Mitacs.

At this time, the platform connects to the awards databases of CIHR, NSERC and the SSHRC, as well as CFI’s Research Facilities Navigator. In addition, COGNIT.CA provides a catalogue of current licensing opportunities from Canadian post-secondary institutions as well as a listing of patents filed for by Canadian post-secondary researchers and institutions.
