Sponsorship of external events

Perimeter Institute is pleased to accept requests for sponsorship of external conferences.

The requests for sponsorship of external conferences have to meet the following criteria:

  1. The event is of national or international significance,
  2. The event is taking place in Canada,
  3. The event is directly related to Perimeter Institute's research or outreach mission and mandate,
  4. Perimeter will receive the following in recognition of its sponsorship:
    • Logo placement on all publicity, and
    • Logo placement on the organizer's website with a link to Perimeter Institute's website
  5. The organizer is willing to provide Perimeter Institute with:
    • An event logo,
    • Two event posters, and
    • A post-event report which includes a short summary, a financial statement detailing the utilization of the Perimeter Institute sponsorship, and all the expenses and revenues of the event, a digital photo of the event, and documentation showing placement of the PI logo (website, posters, signage, etc.).

Perimeter has a maximum allocation of funds for sponsorship each year. Sponsorship amounts generally range from $500 to $3000 though exceptions may be made. We suggest submitting proposals as early as possible, but at least four months before the event date. Sponsorship requests will be reviewed three times a year (January, May and September) and a decision regarding which sponsorships will be approved will take place in those months.
