Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) Announcements

  • Link to the RSO 2017 Innovation Fund page - note in particular the updated Timelines Table.
  • Pitch Day is scheduled for June 8, 2016. This session will provide an opportunity for each approved project to present a brief (10 minute) summary of their project to an audience consisting of the other project leads and members of Panel 2, with the goal of promoting communication between projects to identify potentials for collaboration and overlap in order to strengthen the Institutional offering of CFI proposals. It is mandatory for a representative from each project to participate in Pitch Day. If the Project Lead is not available, a designate must be appointed to present on behalf of the project.
