New Frontiers in Research Fund (NFRF) 2020 Horizon Global Platform Competition
The New Frontiers in Research Fund (NFRF) 2020 Horizon Global Platform provides funding for Canadian researchers who are partners on successful projects funded through eligible calls under the EU Horizon 2020.
- It is expected that the Canadian researcher or research team will be an integral part of the larger Horizon 2020 research team that was awarded a grant. As such, the nominated principal investigator (NPI) and/or their primary affiliation must be a signing partner on the Consortium Agreement for the Horizon 2020 project.
- A Canadian researcher or research team can submit only one application per funded Horizon 2020 project.
- The NPI’s primary affiliation must be with a Canadian institution that currently has full institutional eligibility with one of the agencies. Students, postdoctoral fellows, research associates and similar positions are not eligible to apply as NPIs.
- Co-principal investigators (co-PIs) include all other Canadian researchers named on the same Horizon 2020 project who may access NFRF 2020 Horizon Global Platform grant funds. The co-PIs’ primary affiliation must be with a Canadian institution that currently has full institutional eligibility with one of the agencies.
- It is important to note that the eligibility requirements for NFRF 2020 Horizon Global Platform grants are not necessarily the same as for Horizon 2020.
Grants are valued up to $125,000 per year (including indirect costs) for a maximum of four years. The duration of the grant must not exceed the duration of the Horizon 2020 grant.
The maximum budget for the direct costs related to the research project is $100,000 per year. Applicants may also add up to 25% of the value of the direct costs of research to cover indirect costs and include this in the total funding request.
Two-stage application process:
Registration Deadline: Feb 27, 2020 or within two weeks of the Horizon 2020 deadline for their call, whichever is later. SFU signature sheet is not required at this stage. Registration in submit mode no later than 3 business days before the deadline.
Full Application Deadline: One month after the review results from a Horizon 2020 call are communicated to the project team. SFU Signature Sheet due to firstname.lastname@example.org and application in submit mode no later than 3 business days before the deadline. Overhead is 25%.
*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.
