Call for Proposals for Multi‑Partner Research Initiative

Posted by Jaq-Lin Larder on December 19, 2022 in Research Funding

Under Canada’s Oceans Protection Plan, the Multi-Partner Research Initiative is a five year $30.3 million program that aims to advance Canada’s scientific knowledge and science-based decision making for oil spill response that minimizes the environmental impacts of spills in marine (offshore and near-shore), and onshore freshwater environments.

Natural Resources Canada will provide funding to support collaborative research networks that:

  • increase knowledge about the impacts of oil spills on organisms;
  • develop new technologies and techniques for clean-up; 
  • support science-based decisions that will minimize impacts to the environment and enhance habitat recovery;
  • provide opportunities for participation and training of the next generation of oil spill scientists and responders (e.g., students and young professionals);
  • involve oil spill responders and decision-makers to ensure practical applicability of research;
  • include activities for program synthesis and information transfer; and
  • involve active Indigenous participation, where applicable.
