Arctic and Northern Challenge program
The NRC's Arctic and Northern Challenge program has launched a call for proposals in support of key themes connected to Arctic and Northern housing, health, food and water. Projects selected for funding under the program will improve the daily lives of Northerners through technology and innovation. Arctic and Northern peoples will participate in the design, governance, delivery and dissemination of applied research to address challenges they have identified through consultations.
Funding and support
The program is making available up to $5 million over 3 years to support projects under this funding call. The NRC expects to fund between 6 and 15 projects, requesting between $50,000 and $150,000 per year. Each project may receive up to 3 years in grant or contribution funding from the NRC for research, knowledge mobilization equipment and/or community engagement. Projects with a shorter duration will also be considered.
Research team eligibility
The criteria defining principal investigators (PIs), project administrators, co‑investigators and collaborators are found in the research funding terms and conditions (see Appendix B).
- Each research team must be composed of a PI or project administrator eligible to receive funding (see section 6.2).
