CFI Innovation Fund: UBC Information Sessions

Program Link: www.ipo.ubc.ca/announcement/cfi-innovation-fund-2022-information-sessions

Sponsor: UBC VP Research & innovation and UBC’s Institutional Programs Office (IPO)

Description: CFI will announce a Call for Proposals for the next Innovation Fund (IF) 2022 competition in 2021. In anticipation, the offices of the VP Research and Innovation (VPRI) and Institutional Programs Office (IPO) have begun pre-competition planning. To maximize project development time and support for potential IF projects, information sessions start in January 2021.

UBC’s internal process will be similar to previous competitions. The IPO will communicate CFI deadlines and confirm the UBC internal processes and timeline once we hear from the CFI. We encourage PIs to start the process early in particular if you are collaborating with other institutions. If you are considering an application that involves substantial renovation or new construction, please reach out to us immediately. Please feel free to contact the IPO office at ipo.admin@ubc.ca for assistance.

Dates for UBC CFI LF Information Sessions: January 12, 13 or 19
