Partnership Engage Grants are expected to respond to the objectives of the Insight program and the Connection program. Please note that Partnership Engage Grants cannot respond exclusively to the objectives of the Connection program.
They provide short-term and timely support for partnered research activities that will inform decision-making at a single partner organization from the public, private or not-for-profit sector. The small-scale, stakeholder-driven partnerships supported through the Partnership Engage Grants are meant to respond to immediate needs and time constraints facing organizations in non-academic sectors. In addressing an organization-specific need, challenge and/or opportunity, these partnerships let non-academic organizations and postsecondary researchers access each other’s unique knowledge, expertise and capabilities on topics of mutual interest.
To following conditions must be met to be eligible for an ELAP Faculty Mobility Program’s scholarship:
- Canadian post-secondary institutions must be recognized by their provincial/territorial authorities;
- Recipients must be full-time faculty from Canadian institutions (Part-time professors and lecturers are not eligible);
- Host institutions must be at the collegial level and above and be recognized the local authorities; and

Description: The Faculty Mobility Program provides Canadian faculty with short-term opportunities to teach or conduct research in Latin Americas and the Caribbean, at the college, undergraduate and graduate levels.
The Faculty Mobility Program aims to increase the number of institutional collaborations and student exchange agreements between Canadian and foreign institutions eligible under the Emerging Leaders in the Americas Program (ELAP). These agreements are created between colleges, technical or vocational institutions and universities in Canada, Latin Americas and the Caribbean.
The Program will award grants to teach or conduct research for a short-term in countries eligible to ELAP (CARICOM countries, Central America, Latin America, Mexico).
Scholarship value and duration
Funding for ELAP scholarships is made available by Global Affairs Canada through its legal title: the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development (DFATD).
The Canadian institution will receive funding from DFATD for all successful candidates in the form of a grant and will be responsible for providing the funds to scholarship recipients.
The maximum grant value per faculty is CAD 7,000. Recipients may seek additional funding from other sources (private or public).
The duration of the scholarship is for three (3) weeks minimum and eight (8) maximum (participant can stay longer with funds from other sources)
All funds provided by DFATD related to the project must be made by March 31, 2019 (the termination date of the project can go beyond March 31, 2019).

Ontario Pork is pleased to announce a call for Letters of Intent (LOI) for swine research projects that focus on the Ontario swine industry. Ontario Pork recently completed a review of their research priorities and shifted focus from a priorities list to the overarching research objective: “Test potential improvements to swine industry practices”.
All research projects that align with this overarching objective will be considered, including, but not limited to, swine health, swine welfare, swine nutrition, swine husbandry, swine reproduction, barn design and management, employee health and safety, meat quality and safety, marketing and consumer trends and environmental and economic sustainability. Highest priority is given to projects that demonstrate scientific merit as well as strong identification of the benefit of project results to Ontario pork producers and indication of input or support of a project from swine industry members outside of academia. Specific details on what is expected can be found in the Outline for completion of the Ontario Pork LOI.
Letters of intent should be completed electronically through the Livestock Research and Innovation Corporation’s website. The outline for completing the LOI can be found at the application site and on the Ontario Pork website. http://www.livestockresearch.ca/research/

The Beef Cattle Research Council (BCRC) invites proposals from leading research institutions for the establishment of Research Chairs. The deadline is October 1, 2018 at 11:59 PM MT.
Currently, a shortage of scientific experts and research capacity in some areas of beef, cattle and forage research are hindering the ability to conduct priority research that supports improvements in productivity and demand and responds to emerging issues. To fill these gaps, the BCRC is exploring options to establish Research Chairs in key areas with investment of Canadian Beef Cattle Check-Off funding in partnership with other funders.
To procure the strongest opportunities for capacity development and encourage matching investments, Research Chair concepts will be considered through an open call for proposals. The BCRC welcomes proposals that work towards the achievement of its three core research objectives:
- To enhance industry competitiveness and reduce production costs, priority outcomes are to enhance feed and forage production, increase feed efficiency, and decrease the impact of animal health issues and production limiting diseases.
- To improve beef demand and quality, priority outcomes are to reduce food safety incidences, define quality and yield benchmarks supporting the Canadian Beef Advantage, and improve beef quality through primary production improvements and the development and application of technologies to optimize cut-out values and beef demand.
- To improve public confidence in Canadian beef, outcomes are to improve food safety, strengthen the surveillance of antimicrobial use and resistance, develop effective antimicrobial alternatives, ensure animal care, demonstrate the safety and efficacy of new production technologies, improve environmental sustainability and measure the beef industry’s environmental benefits.
