A proud founding partner of the awards, the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) managed the adjudication process, drawing on the best practices of our well-established and highly rigorous merit-based review process – the same process we use to award funds for research infrastructure projects at universities and colleges across Canada.

The awards ceremony will be held May 23, 2018, at Rideau Hall in Ottawa.
