Canada Biomedical Research Fund and Biosciences Research Infrastructure Fund—Stage 2: 3. Proposals

3. Proposals

Proposals should present innovative initiatives on a larger scale and higher risk than typically supported via individual research funding agency programs.

Each proposal can include one or more of the following components:

Note: Each research infrastructure or talent development component must directly support one or more proposals that include a research component.

While research infrastructure should support training through research, research infrastructure requests exclusively supporting talent development proposals will not be accepted (e.g., mock training facilities).

Activities relying on research infrastructure should take into consideration its availability, including the time necessary to acquire and commission new infrastructure, and consider its impact on the proposed activities.

Proposals must include the expertise and partners required to ensure goals are achieved and results are mobilized to obtain desired impacts. Each partner organization must play an active role in the proposal and support it through financial and/or in-kind contributions. Partners can be from the private, public, and not-for-profit sectors across Canada.

To grow Canada’s domestic biomanufacturing and life sciences sectors and ensure the country’s readiness for future pandemics or other health emergencies, private sector partners must be incorporated pursuant to the laws of Canada and must be doing business in Canada. International partnerships are permitted if they have commercial activities that take place in Canada, such as research and development or manufacturing related to the proposed research, and if the funded activity will result in significant economic benefit to Canada.
