Other Funding

SPARC supports the development of large, institutional funding applications beyond the national Tri-Agencies (CIHR, NSERC and SSHRC) programs on a more ad hoc basis.

Some successfully funded applications previously supported by SPARC have been for programs including Canada Excellence Research Chairs, Canada First Research Excellence Fund and Networks of Centres of Excellence programs (including NCE "Classic" and Centres of Excellence for Commercialization and Research (CECR) competitions).

UBC faculty planning on developing proposals for institutional funding programs can contact a SPARC team member who specializes in the relevant area of research: CIHR/health; NSERC/natural sciences and engineering; and SSHRC/social sciences and humanities.
