Petroleum Research Atlantic Canada (PRAC) is calling for research proposals
that address four R&D themes: hydrocarbon evaluation; environmental
impacts and effects; operations and technologies, and policy. For this
call, there is special interest in the following areas: basin analysis
and architecture; reservoir studies and reservoir management; sedimentology
studies; pore pressure prediction; human health and safety; and deepwater
technologies. PRACs contribution towards selected proposals will
be in the range of $20,000 to $50,000 per year. Either full proposals
of up to 15 pages or preliminary proposals of up to five pages may be
submitted. The deadline for receipt of submissions under this call is
Jan. 31, 2003.
Education Research Initiative
The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) in partnership
with the Canadian Education Statistics Council (CESC) have announced the
launch of a new program entitled the CESC-SSHRC Education Research Initiative.
This program offers grants of up to $100,000 for two-year programs of
research involving the use of data sets that provide policy-relevant information
about learning outcomes at all stages of life. The theme for the upcoming
competition is Learning Outcomes. The next competition to take place in
2003-04 will likely have a theme of Transitions. Details are available
The deadline for submission of applications is Feb. 10, 2003.
Climate and atmospheric sciences
The Canadian Foundation for Climate and Atmospheric Sciences (CFCAS) is
inviting applications under two different programs. Applications for research
projects may be submitted for up to $200,000 a year for a maximum three-year
period. Research related to the Arctic climate system; the cryosphere;
scientific aspects of extreme weather (including drought); and marine
environmental prediction are particularly encouraged. Letters of intent
for networks or major initiatives costing in excess of $200,000 a year
for up to three years may also be submitted. Further information is available
at www.cfcas.org. The deadline for
submission of project applications or letters of intent for networks or
major initiatives is Feb. 14, 2003.
Aboriginal Healing Foundation
The Aboriginal Healing Foundation provides funding to community-based
healing projects which address physical and sexual abuse arising from
the residential school system, including its intergenerational impacts.
The final deadline for receipt of proposals by the foundation will be
Feb. 28, 2003. Applications may be submitted for renewal of currently
funded projects or for new projects. Funding for new projects will be
restricted to healing initiatives that seek to pursue a targeted focus;
that reach youth; that create effective and unique strategies for men;
and that seek out hard-to-reach groups such as Inuit, Métis, and
remote communities. Further information is available at www.ahf.ca.
The Canadian Institutes for Photonic Innovations, Inc. (CIPI), a Network
of Centres of Excellence, will be issuing a call for proposals in mid-January
2003. New researchers who wish to join the CIPI network are encouraged
to contact existing CIPI researchers to participate in a collaborative
project proposal or they may also contact CIPI to discuss new proposals
where no current CIPI researchers are involved. At least two universities
must be involved in any one project proposal and any university that is
not a signatory to the Network Agreement would need to sign on before
an investigator could receive funds. Further information, including a
list of current network investigators, is available at www.cipi.ulaval.ca.
The deadline for receipt of research proposals is tentatively set for
Feb. 28, 2003.
New application procedures The Arthritis
The Arthritis Society advises that applications to their 2003/04 competition
will be adjudicated by CIHR. Applications, therefore, should be submitted
to CIHR by March 1, 2003. To be considered for TAS funding
should be indicated on page one of the research module in the section
titled Name of Industrial Partner(s) or Partnership Program or Special
Program. In addition, in order to be considered for funding, a copy
of page one of the completed CIHR research module and the cover page of
the CV module must be forwarded to The Arthritis Society. Detailed guidelines
are available at www.arthritis.ca/research/regulations.
Public Disclosure of Health Risks
Health Canada has issued a request for proposals on public disclosure
of potential and theoretical health risks. Health Canada is seeking to
understand when, how, and under what circumstances Canadians want disclosure
of potential or theoretical risks to health, as well as the type of information
Canadians want to receive. The intent is that the research to be carried
out under this call will contribute to policy development for public disclosure
by supporting the development of tools and methodologies that complement
Health Canadas decision-making framework and by addressing gaps
in health policy and regulatory initiatives. Details of the Request for
Proposals are available at www.hc-sc.gc.ca/iacb-dgiac/arad-draa/english/rmdd/
rfp/rfp013.html. The deadline for receipt of applications is March
Greenhouse Gas Mitigation
NSERC has announced that there will be a 2003 competition under the Novel
Next Generation Technology Initiative in Energy Research and Technology
Related to Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Mitigation Program. This program is run
with the support of Natural Resources Canadas Office of Energy R&D.
To be considered under this next competition, projects must be directly
related to greenhouse gas mitigation and new energy technologies and processes.
In addition, applicants will no longer be able to apply to both this program
and NSERCs Strategic Grants Program with overlapping projects. New
program guidelines will be available on the NSERC Web site (www.nserc.ca)
in late January 2003. The deadline for submission of applications will
be April 15, 2003.
