The Seed Fund supports innovative projects that have the potential to advance research, commercial or social concepts relating to the ocean. For example:

  • conducting preliminary ocean research or feasibility studies
  • testing new approaches or developing prototypes that advance marine science
  • developing a new concept, idea, or opportunity in support of ocean sustainability


Applications are welcomed from current faculty, students and post docs at Dalhousie University and/or Memorial University of Newfoundland who are conducting research related to OFI priorities. The fund cannot be used to supplement OFI’s large research projects currently under way.

Application procedure can be found at the OFI webpage.
