For the upcoming Notifications of Intent to Apply (Form 182, due May 1, 2011), applicants will be required to choose a target area (or select “none”), which will be used for planning purposes. All Notifications of Intent will be evaluated through the same process regardless of the choice of Target Area.
Clarifications regarding Knowledge/Technology User Organizations : Partnerships with Canadian-based knowledge/technology user organizations are strongly encouraged. Exceptions will be considered when applicants have been unable to develop a collaboration with a suitable Canadian-based knowledge/technology user organization. In such cases, the health and economic benefits to Canada resulting from the partnership must be clearly outlined in the proposal.
