Ontario Agri-Food Innovation Alliance
The objectives of the Knowledge Translation and Transfer (KTT) Funding Program are to explore the science of KTT, drive knowledge into action and evaluate and utilize KTT methods and best practices.
The Ontario Agri-Food Innovation Alliance invites project proposals in the following funding stream:
- KTT Mobilization Funding supports activities that disseminate research findings or engage audiences in research. This includes outreach and/or engagement activities that enable the dissemination, uptake and/or use of research to support Ontario’s agri-food sector and/or rural communities.
All projects must relate to an established OMAFRA research priority and support Ontario’s agri-food and/or rural sectors. Projects do not need to address a specific research question within the identified priority.
Projects will be adjudicated through a one-step review process. Full proposals are due by 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, February 15, 2024.
For further information about this call and OMAFRA research priorities, please visit the KTT page on the Ontario Agri-Food Innovation Alliance website.
University of Guelph faculty members are eligible to be the lead applicant and/or a co-applicant on any project funded by the Ontario Agri-Food Innovation Alliance.
Applicants must be fully compliant with all reporting requirements prior to a new proposal being reviewed under any Alliance Research Program. The Lead Applicant and the Co-Applicant will have 30 days from the submission deadline to complete any outstanding compliance requirements, including reporting. If applicants are not compliant at that time the submitted proposal will be withdrawn from the review process and declined.
Maximum Project Value
For KTT Mobilization Projects, the maximum project value is $50,000 ($25,000 per year for up to two years).
A virtual town hall information session will be held on November 8, 2023 from 11 a.m. to noon via Teams:
