CIFAR Global Call for Ideas: apply by 21 January 2018

last modified Nov 13, 2017 12:43 PM
The Canadian Institute For Advanced Research (CIFAR) is launching a Global Call for Ideas for challenge-focused interdisciplinary research collaborations in any area of research.

CIFAR is not a traditional funder of research but rather a convener of researchers. It supports global networks of researchers who work together on a common question from an interdisciplinary perspective.

CIFAR invites the global research community to submit proposals for new programs that address complex, fundamental questions of importance to the world. Ideas must be novel, bold, and potentially transformative to warrant the creation of a sustained, interdisciplinary, and collaborative research program.

Submissions must address global, complex questions and identify an interdisciplinary research approach. Proposals will be accepted from all areas of research.

Stage I requires a Letter of Intent (LOI) from researchers who would be key members of the program. This submission should identify the core elements of the research idea and the range of possible research questions for consideration.

CIFAR will shortlist LOIs based on the recommendations from the International Review Body and CIFAR’s Research Council.

You can find more information about CIFAR, the call, and how to submit your LOI, here.

The call opens on 15 November and the first stage is a Letter of Intent due by 21 January 2018.
