Internal Deadline (Notice of Intent): New Frontiers in Research Fund – Transformation Stream

The New Frontiers in Research Fund (NFRF) – Transformation 2022 competition has now been launched.

NFRF Transformation stream grants will support projects that:

  1. tackle a well-defined problem or challenge;
  2. propose a novel world-leading approach that is different from the current state-of-the-art approaches to the issue;
  3. are interdisciplinary, bringing different perspectives to the defined problem; and
  4. have the potential to be transformative, defined as the potential to create a significant and real change or impact—a noticeable leap or tangible breakthrough rather than an incremental advance.

Transformation grants are valued at between $2,000,000 and $4,000,000 per year, including 25% indirect costs, for up to six years. Researchers interested in applying for a Transformation grant are strongly encouraged to contact their Dean/Associate Dean Research, and the Manager, Institutional and International Programs (shelley.brown@dal.ca) at ORS.

The Transformation stream is a three-stage competition, with internal deadlines for each stage. See below for deadline details.
