New Frontiers in Research Fund: Exploration Stream

Posted by Jaq-Lin Larder on January 14, 2019 in Research Funding

Updated January 21, 2019 - Deadlines extended by one week, from January 24 to January 31 (internal), and February 7 to February 14 (external).

The New Frontiers in Research Fund - Exploration inaugural competition will generate opportunities for early career researchers to conduct high-risk, high reward and interdisciplinary research not available through funding currently offered by the three agencies (CIHR, NSERC, SSHRC). It seeks to inspire highly innovative projects that defy current research paradigms, propose a unique scientific direction, bring disciplines together beyond the traditional disciplinary approaches, and/or use different perspectives to solve existing problems.

Early career researchers are defined as individuals who have five years or less experience since their first academic appointment.

For more information please visit the NFRF Exploration website and instructions for completing a full application.
