Two-step application process:

Feb 11, 2020: SOI Deadline. SFU signature sheet is not required at this stage. Applicant (not ORS) submits SOI to agency.

Given the current situation with COVID-19 and the related closure of many institutions and disruptions to many work schedules, we have decided to extend the application deadline for the Sector Innovation Program – Intake 7. This will delay the notification of results, but we think that it is the best choice given the current challenges.

*Reminder: Based on the revision of Postdoctoral fellow(PDF) policy (R50.03), please continue to include 14% of PDF benefit in all your proposal budgets.
