Funding for research

The UK’s Science and Innovation Network in Canada has announced the launch of their second Collaboration Development Award (CDA) programme. This programme is open to academic and industrial scientists in the UK and Canada looking to create bilateral (or multilateral) partnerships.

This programme aims to encourage relationships between researchers in Canada and the UK in priority areas by building on existing agreements such as the Canada-UK Joint Declaration, Joint Innovation Statement, and Polar Research MoU.

Up to twelve awards will be offered. Each award is valued at  £1250 (approx CAN$ 2000) and will allow scientists, engineers, academic leaders and innovation experts to travel abroad for short visits to lay the groundwork for collaborative efforts. 

You can check out our blog for last year’s awardees.
