The Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) has launched its 2023 Innovation Fund competition. Through this competition, the CFI will invest up to $400 million in research infrastructure funding, covering up to 40 percent of a project’s eligible infrastructure costs. Projects funded through the Innovation Fund will allow researchers in Canada to generate social, health, environmental and economic benefits, and to make meaningful contributions to addressing global challenges.
The objectives of the 2023 Innovation Fund competition are to:
- Enable internationally competitive research or technology development through the equitable participation of expert team members
- Enhance and optimize the capacity of institutions and research communities to conduct the proposed research or technology development program(s) over the useful life of the infrastructure
- Lead to social, health, environmental and/or economic benefits for Canadians.
February 23, 2022, is the deadline to submit notices of intent for the 2023 Innovation Fund competition.
