The Ontario Ministry of Transportation's 2018-19 Highway Infrastructure Innovations Funding Program (HIIFP) invites all of Ontario colleges and universities to submit research proposals in topics related to highway infrastructure engineering, and to interactions of infrastructure with road safety, policy and planning, investment decisions, and environmental sustainability.
Detailed information about the terms of reference, topics and application procedures are attached in the HIIFP 2018 Program Guidelines. Topics of special interest to the Ministry are listed in the Program Guide, but applications will be considered for any topic related to highway infrastructure management.
All public universities and colleges in Ontario are eligible for funding under the HIIFP. The Principle Researcher must be a member of the faculty (full or part-time) at the sponsoring institution.
The award value is subject to budget approval and the Ministry may have to delay any award until the HIIFP budget has been approved. The total value of awards is expected to be about $1,500,000, including approximately thirty new projects in addition to ongoing projects.
If College-level review is required, your College will communicate its earlier internal deadlines.
