Welcome to the Centre for Research and Innovation (CRI)

New research funding opportunities added

We've just finished a regular update of our External Funding Opportunities page. There are numerous research funding opportunities across all disciplines. New this time is the Movember Foundation, which is looking for research projects on men and boys' mental health (letter of intent due May 9). We also feature the Spencer Foundation, a U.S.-based research organization that funds research into education, teaching and learning and related themes (deadline June 24). If you are interested in applying for these or any other funding opportunities, contact the Centre for Research and Innovation (CRI) at research@fanshawec.ca.

Alberta-Ontario program supports industry projects across provincial borders

The Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE) and Alberta Innovates-Technology Futures (AITF) have announced a new, two-year research funding program that will involve researchers from both provinces in industry-driven collaborations. The Alberta-Ontario Innovation program (letter of intent due June 9) pairs Ontario and Alberta researchers with a company operating in both provinces, or with multiple companies in each province. The program funds projects in manufacturing, environment, energy, agriculture, life sciences, health technologies, IT and digital media. More details are available at http://www.oce-ontario.org/programs/collaborative-commercialization/albertaontario.
