This program provides resources and support to enable multidisciplinary research teams to achieve a demonstrable increase in research impacts that go beyond individual researchers. The deliverables for each team include but are not limited to:

  • A Carleton-led application to a major funding opportunity within one year of the funding start date. Examples of major funding opportunities include the Canada Research Coordinating Committee’s New Frontiers in Research Fund (Transformation and International Streams). http://www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/127.nsf/eng/home
  • A plan to boost the research productivity of the multidisciplinary research cluster on a sustainable basis. The plan should address the impact on society and on the regulatory framework, as well as the potential economic development (if appropriate).
  • A communications and outreach plan to promote Carleton’s multidisciplinary research excellence in the area, including a web site, brochures, and a professional presentation.

Funding Available

Initial investment of up to $50,000 for one year (up to 10 awards).
