The Canadian Institute for Advanced Research (CIFAR) is expanding its portfolio of research programs through its Global Call for Ideas. They invite leading researchers to submit proposals for creating a research network that will address a complex challenge of global importance.
CIFAR welcomes Letters of Intent (LOIs) from either individual researchers or small groups. The research must be foundational in nature and sufficiently bold, ambitious and complex to require sustained collaboration from an outstanding network that is both international and interdisciplinary. Areas of inquiry can draw on disciplinary expertise from anywhere across the spectrum, from the natural, health and social sciences, to the humanities. Its ultimate aim should be to fuel significant progress and/or a fundamental change in our collective understanding of an important issue.
Criteria: The LOIs will be evaluated against four (4) major criteria, including Significance, Potential, Excellence and Leadership. See the Global Call Details page for more information.
Duration: Each program is supported for a renewable, five-year period.
Value: Will depends largely on the size of the program. Note that expenditures for each of the existing twelve global networks range from $0.8 to $1.5M annually. See the FAQs document for more information.
Additional information: See Global Call Details page for more details, including the Letter of Intent (LOI) Instructions; information on Review Panels; FAQs, and more about CIFAR Research and Global Call Contacts.
LOI Stage I : CIFAR requires a Letter of Intent (LOI) from one or several researchers who would be core members of the project. This three-page summary should identify the elements of the research idea and the range of possible research questions for consideration. Note that applicants are encouraged to use the LOI template provided.
