Program Description

The objective of the New Frontiers in Research Fund (NFRF) Transformation stream is to support large-scale, Canadian-led interdisciplinary research projects that address a major challenge with the potential to realize real and lasting change. The challenge may be fundamental, leading to a scientific breakthrough, or applied, with a social, economic, environmental or health impact. Projects are expected to be world-leading, drawing on global research expertise, when relevant.

Transformation grants are valued at between $2,000,000 and $4,000,000 per year (including indirect costs) for six years. The total competition budget is $144,000,000 over six years. It is anticipated that Transformation competitions will be held every two years with a similar competition budget.

The mandatory NOI stage has passed. Letters of Intent are due January 10th, and only applicants who are invited forwards will be able to submit a full application (due Sept 5, 2024).
