New Frontiers in Research Fund (NFRF) Special Call: Research for Post-pandemic Recovery

The COVID-19 pandemic has had differential impacts on individuals, communities, and countries, intensifying the inequalities that existed before this crisis. Globally, numerous voices have been advocating for “building back better” rather than a return to the status quo as the world emerges from this pandemic.

The goal of this Special Call is to mobilize Canadian-led research efforts in support of a more equitable, sustainable and resilient postpandemic reality. The maximum budget for the direct costs of the research projects is $200,000 per year, for up to two years with an automatic 1-year extension.

Eligibility

Proposals must be submitted by research teams composed of at least two individuals. In addition to a nominated principal investigator (NPI), the team must include either a co-principal investigator (co-PI) or a co-applicant. Teams may include any number of co-PIs, co-applicants and/or collaborators.

Amount

The maximum budget for the direct costs of the research project is $200,000. Awards are one-year grants and are eligible for an automatic one-year extension. Grantees will have two years to complete their projects and spend grant funds. Requested amounts should reflect the funds required to carry out the project and must be justified. 

**This grant opportunity allows applicants to request a maximum 25% of the value of the direct costs of research to cover indirect costs and include this in their total funding request**
