Canadian Glycomics Network (GlycoNet) - Translational Funding – 2020-2021
These grants further advance/translate projects with proof of concept and protected IP.
GlycoNet has set aside up to $600,000 for this competition. 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). An individual may serve as the Project Leader on only one Translational Funding application and may not be involved in more than two Translational Funding applications. Simultaneous application for Phase I and Phase II funding for the same project is not allowed.
• Be aligned with one of the GlycoNet research themes (see glyconet.ca).
• Be multidisciplinary and involve at least two research groups.
• Must have an articulated IP and patentability strategy.
• Be accompanied by a commercialisation plan provided by the Technology Transfer Office of the Project Leader’s Institution.
• Have a clear endpoint, successful completion of which would attract a potential partner.
This is a rolling competition until the funding lasts. Applicants can submit their proposals when they are ready.
• June 15 deadline: Results expected by October 31
• September 15 deadline: Results expected by January 31
