Type of Program:
The Genomics in Society Interdisciplinary Research Teams Program aims to strengthen the connections between researchers, users and other stakeholders on issues that could impact the uptake and application of genomic technologies, including commercialization.
There are three funding streams with the goal of funding at least one team in each stream:
Stream 1: proposals mainly impacting the human health sector,
Stream 2: proposals mainly impacting the agriculture/agri-food and/or aquaculture/fisheries sectors,
Stream 3: proposals mainly impacting the natural resource (forestry, energy, mining) and/or environment sectors.
Cross-sectorial proposals that address multiple sectors across two or three streams are also eligible to apply.
Comments on Funding:
Funding is up to 50% of the requested funds for eligible costs, ranging from $500,000 to a maximum of $1 million to an approved team for a term of up to four years.
At least 50% of the requested funds for eligible costs for each team must be obtained through co-funding. At least 50% of the co-funding needs to be secured at the time of the release of funds and a feasible plan needs to be submitted describing how the remaining co-funding will be obtained over the term of the team.
