New Frontiers in Research Fund-2020 Transformation Competition (NFRFT)

The objective of the Transformation stream is to support large-scale, Canadian-led interdisciplinary research projects that address a major challenge with the potential to realize real and lasting change. The challenge may be fundamental, leading to a scientific breakthrough, or applied, with a social, economic, environmental or health impact. Projects are expected to be world-leading, drawing on global research expertise, when relevant. Transformation grants are valued at between $2,000,000 and $4,000,000 per year (including indirect costs) for up to six years.
