More Details

The objective of the Exploration stream is to generate opportunities for researchers to conduct high-risk, high-reward and interdisciplinary research not easily supported through funding opportunities currently offered by the Tri-agencies. It seeks to inspire highly innovative projects that defy current research paradigms, propose a unique scientific direction, bring disciplines together beyond the traditional disciplinary approaches, and/or use different perspectives to solve existing problems.
