Opportunity

The Genomic Applications Partnership Program (GAPP) funds downstream research and development (R&D) projects that address real world opportunities and challenges defined by “Receptor” organizations such as industry, government, or not-for-profit entities. These organizations should be committed to commercializing or implementing the outcomes of the project.

Eligibility

To be eligible for the GAPP, a project must:

  • Develop and apply a genomics-derived or genomics-enabling tool, product or process to an opportunity or challenge defined by the Receptor(s);
  • Focus on late stage R&D that will position the innovation for near-term implementation / commercialization;
  • Be co-led by an academic and a Receptor organization in partnership, with active and necessary roles for both; and
  • Demonstrate the potential to generate significant social and/or economic benefits for Canada.

Funding Available

$300,000 to $6 million.
