2012 Leading Edge and New Initiatives Funds

Leading Edge and New Initiatives Funds

Note: This competition is now closed. The CFI is no longer accepting proposals.

CFI-funded infrastructure helps attract top researchers to Canadian institutions and contributes to Canada’s global research reputation. Institutions must maintain this status in order to continue to perform world-class research and technology development. To support this objective, the CFI’s 2012 Leading Edge and New Initiatives Funds competition will invest in innovative infrastructure projects that sustain and enhance areas of activity in which the CFI has already invested and provide support to explore promising new research directions.
