Humber Valley Thriving Regions Partnership Process
Academic Unit: Inquire with Unit
Memorial Deadline: RGCS Review not required
External Deadline: Friday 28th, January 2022
The Harris Centre is releasing a Call for Expressions of Interest from Memorial University faculty, staff and students to complete research projects focusing on the priority themes that were identified. A proposal evaluation committee comprised of local and academic members will choose which researchers will move forward in the process and attend a second workshop later in 2021. These researchers will then refine their research plans and incorporate input from the residents in the region.
This is a flexible fund with a total of $45,000 available for one or more applied research projects focused on the regionally-identified Humber Valley priorities. We welcome both EOIs seeking smaller amounts of funding as well as larger projects for up to the full amount available (i.e., up to $45,000) from MUN faculty, students (including international students) and staff.
In cases where researchers request larger amounts of funding, we strongly encourage projects that lend themselves to multi-disciplinary research teams.
An independent evaluation committee will make final recommendations with regards to both the number of awards and funding amounts within the $45,000 envelope.
