January 22, 2024

The College and Community Innovation (CCI) program’s Mobilize grants 2024 competition, managed by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, in collaboration with the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, is now open.

Mobilize grants are designed to provide flexibility to accommodate the diverse and unique needs of distinct colleges—whether large or small, urban or rural, and with established or developing research programs. Mobilize grants are intended to provide Canadian colleges with long-term funding that can be applied to single, multiple or institution-wide applied research programs in the natural sciences, engineering, social sciences, humanities and health sciences fields.

Whether a college is establishing a new applied research program, enhancing an existing program or undertaking a number of short, time-critical applied research projects, Mobilize grants will allow the college to take a strategic and systematic approach in determining the types of resources needed to maximize student training and innovation impacts for its partners. Additionally, a key feature of Mobilize grants is to strengthen connections with research partners and other government-funded innovation support providers.

Applications must be submitted via the Convergence Portal by April 25, 2024 before 8:00 pm (Eastern Time). Please read the Mobilize grants description and instructions for more information.
