The Tri-agency Institutional Programs Secretariat (TIPS) has shared the latest draft of the New Frontiers in Research Fund Transformation stream overview. Once the competition opens, the final version of this document and other application guidelines will be posted online.
The design of the Transformation stream was informed by feedback received on the framework, which was made public in late June. Many comments highlighted the stream’s flexibility in supporting projects on any topic and of varying scopes and approaches as a key advantage. TIPS endeavoured to maintain this flexibility as they addressed requests for greater clarity or specificity.
There is considerable interest within the research community for more information about the stream and the competition’s opening. While TIPS awaits confirmation of its opening, they hope that sharing this draft document will provide some insight into the general direction the competition is taking. It will also enables provision of some initial direction to researchers who are interested. Please note that this document is not final and that further changes are possible.
