Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) 2020 Innovation Fund - internal call for proposals

Thu. Apr. 25, 2019

The Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) recently launched its draft call for the 2020 Innovation Fund, and as a result we are now launching the process for selection of UWinnipeg proposals to move forward in this upcoming CFI IF competition.

The University of Winnipeg will be sending forward applications to CFI for this competition as chosen by an internal committee. Internal applicants can be partnering on a large multi-institutional application, or put forward a UWinnipeg led proposal. Our institutional budget envelope is $1,750,000 – or – a single proposal that exceeds the envelope.

More details about the internal process and the assessment criteria, along with the internal application form, can be provided by Jennifer Cleary in the Research and Innovation Office. The internal application form and attachments are due by Monday, June 3, 2019, and should be forwarded to Jennifer Cleary at
