Ocean Frontier Institute

Posted by Jaq-Lin Larder on May 27, 2019 in Research Funding

The Ocean Frontier Institute (OFI), a transnational research organization led by Dal, has launched a new funding mechanism. The OFI Opportunities Fund financially supports participation in emerging ocean-related research that provides a unique opportunity for researchers to link their expertise to externally-led projects. Awards, which range from $30,000 to $75,000, enable projects unlikely to be supported through traditional funding mechanisms because of the transnational or time-sensitive nature of the unique opportunity.

The Opportunities Fund is open to current faculty at Dalhousie University. Proposals must be aligned with OFI’s research priorities and complement an emerging program led by a Canadian or international institution in which the Principal Investigator receiving the Opportunities Fund grant would otherwise be unable to participate.

All fund information, including selection criteria and how to apply, can be found on OFI’s web site. Researchers are encouraged to discuss their unique opportunity with Dr. Anya Waite, OFI Scientific Director and AVP of Ocean Research, prior to developing a proposal.

This call for submissions will remain open until all funds have been allocated, allowing researchers to take advantage of unique, time sensitive opportunities as they arise.
