From the New Frontiers in Research Fund
A 2021 Innovative Approaches to Research in the Pandemic Context competition of the New Frontiers in Research Fund (NFRF) has been launched.
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a documented disruptive effect on researchers’ ability to continue planned research activities, particularly community and field-based research.
However, the pandemic also provides a unique opportunity to explore new directions in research methodologies, such as innovative approaches to increasing research inclusiveness through the proactive engagement and empowerment of community and other stakeholders to conduct research themselves.
This exploration could include developing and testing new approaches to community science, patient-oriented research, Indigenous-led research and more.
We invite you to explore this opportunity on our website and encourage you to consider applying.
The competition has 2 stages:
- Notification of Intent to Apply (NOI) stage with a deadline of September 21, 2021 (at 8 p.m. Eastern Time)
- Full Application stage with a deadline of October 26, 2021 (at 8 p.m. Eastern Time)
