Transformation


Monday, September 19, 2022, will be a one-time holiday for the federal public service to coincide with Her Late Majesty’s State Funeral and the end of the official period of mourning in Canada. In light of this, we are extending the full application deadline for the New Frontiers in Research Fund 2022 Transformation competition by 24 hours. The new deadline is now September 21, 2022, at 8pm (eastern time).

The Transformation stream is designed to support large-scale, Canadian-led interdisciplinary research projects that address a major challenge with the potential to realize real and lasting change (high-reward). The challenge may be fundamental, leading to a scientific breakthrough, or applied, with a social, economic, environmental or health impact. Projects are expected to be world-leading, drawing on global research expertise where relevant.
