Canadian Glycomics Network (GlycoNet) - Strategic Initiatives 2022–2023
The Canadian Glycomics Network (GlycoNet) is a Network of Centres of Excellence that focuses on the role of glycans (carbohydrates) in health. Areas of focus are neurodegenerative diseases, infectious diseases, chronic diseases, in particular diabetes & obesity, genetic diseases involving errors in glycan metabolism, and cancer.
• Be aligned with one of the GlycoNet research themes (see glyconet.ca).
• Must have an articulated IP and patentability strategy.
• Be accompanied by a commercialization plan provided by the Technology Transfer Office of the project leader’s institution or the project’s industrial partner
• Must address partner’s research needs or challenges.
• Have an identified partner that could take over the outcomes of the research
GlycoNet has set aside up to $600,000 for Strategic Initiatives in 2020–2021. Proposals may request up to $150,000 in funding.
Partner matching of 1:1 is required, greater matching will be viewed more favorably by the committee. 50% of matching must be cash (for a $150,000 request, matching should be at least $75,000 cash and $75,000 in-kind). Partner funding must be NCE eligible; in particular, other Canadian Federal funding is ineligible for matching.
This opportunity is open only to individuals eligible to hold Tri-Council funds; i.e., the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) or the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC).
This is a rolling competition until the funding lasts. Applicants can submit their proposals when they are ready. Application review will be performed as follow:
• June 15 deadline: Results expected by October 31
• September 15 deadline: Results expected by January 31
Potential applicants must register by email to email@example.com. Please provide the project title, anticipated budget request, a 500-word (maximum) summary of the project, and list of investigators involved in the project. This information can be modified when the application is submitted although the overall focus must remain the same. Upon registration, applicants will receive instructions for completing the application.
