MONTREAL, September 22, 2021 – Today, CanVECTOR launched its Fall 2021 Research Start-Up Awards Competitions with a submission deadline of Monday, November 1, 2021. The purpose of the Research Start-up Awards is to help trainees achieve their research objectives through start-up operating funds for a research project or preliminary / pilot work to strengthen their research, including services, materials, or supplies.

This funding is not intended to provide salary support for trainees and the requested funds must not overlap with funding that’s available from other sources. Research start-up funding is not intended to provide support for travel relating to any academic experiences (e.g. presentation of research work at a scientific conference).
