1) The Next Phase Of The New Frontiers in Research Fund

The Honourable Kirsty Duncan, Minister of Science and Sport, announced the next phase of the New Frontiers in Research Fund (NFRF)―the community consultations for the Transformation stream. To be launched in October, this competition stream will support large-scale, Canadian-led interdisciplinary research projects that have the potential to bring about real and lasting change.

The 2019 competition that will take place following community consultations will see an investment of $144 million over six years, with individual awards of up to $4 million per year. Researchers and institutions are invited to provide feedback on the Transformation stream framework by August 1, 2019.

The minister launched the 2019 Exploration competition earlier this year. While that competition was only open to early career researchers, the Transformation stream will be open to all researchers.
