CFI Awards over $23 Million Across Canada
Following fast on the heals of the Canadian Research Chair funding announcements earlier this month, the Canadian Foundation for Innovation (CFI) has awarded $23.4 Million to hundreds of projects across the country.
According to Ed Holder, Minister of State (Science and Technology)
Canadian researchers need state-of-the-art tools in order to undertake world-class research. Our government believes significant investment in these tools is essential to making scientific breakthroughs, which improve the lives of Canadians and increases economic prosperity.
The funds are dedicated to providing tools and infrastructure that allow leading researchers to continue expanding the frontiers of science, health, social sciences and humanities. An additional $7 million will be used to support the operational costs of this infrastructure.
