Program Link: https://ipo.ubc.ca/announcement/cfi-innovation-fund-2023-ubc-expression-interest-form

Sponsor: Canadian Foundation for Innovation

Description: **This message is sent on behalf of Leonard Foster UBC CFI Advisor and Sharon Wu Managing Director, Research Support Services – Institutional Programs Office **
We invite faculty intending to apply for the CFI Innovation Fund 2023 competition to submit a UBC internal Expression of Interest (EOI) utilizing our short online form. The EOIs are due on September 15th, 2021.
The EOI is mandatory for all projects that UBC is to be the lead and for projects that UBC is collaborating led by other institutions. Information in the EOI will be used to plan the next steps of the IF proposal planning, including recruiting reviewers for our internal review panel.
In preparation of the UBC internal proposals that are due on November 24th 2021, the UBC internal application guidance notes and other reference documents are now available on the IPO website.
Please note that a CWL is needed to access the EOI and resources. If you are a researcher or administrator who does not have a CWL or if you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Institutional Programs Office (ipo.admin@ubc.ca).

Innovation Fund proponents will need to submit an online expression of interest to the University’s Institutional Programs Office. CWL is needed to access EOI.
