CFI Funding Program Consultation - Edmonton



Over the next two months, the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) staff will be meeting with stakeholders across the country on potential adjustments to the CFI’s core funding mechanisms:

CFI asks that you RSVP with the name of your institution, the number of participants from your institution and the city/location of the session you will attend to no later than one week prior to the session. CFI encourages all interested research administrators, funding partners, researchers, and other stakeholders to attend.

The purpose of the consultation is to:

  • identify opportunities for better alignment with institutional and community needs;
  • make adjustments to the design of CFI funds to address evolving priorities; and,
  • encourage the development of research infrastructure proposals of the highest quality, in order to better enhance the capacity of institutions and their researchers to conduct world-class research and technology development.
