Title:
New Frontiers in Research Fund - Exploration
Agreement Value:
$250,000.00
Agreement Date:
Mar. 31, 2021 - Mar. 30, 2023
Description:
The Exploration stream of the NFRF program supports high risk, high reward and interdisciplinary research that is not easily supported through funding opportunities currently offered by the three agencies. It seeks to inspire projects that bring disciplines together beyond traditional disciplinary or common interdisciplinary approaches by research teams with the capacity to explore something new, which might fail but has the potential for significant impact. Exploration grants aim to have a variety of types of impacts, some of which might be social, economic, scientific, artistic or cultural. This is not an exhaustive list; other types of impacts are also recognized.
