|Initiatives to engage applicants and recipients||Through an extensive multisector engagement initiative, the program engaged key industry and provincial/territorial stakeholders during the development of the program. This informed the technology agnostic scope of the program. In order to facilitate the co-funding of projects with provincial and territorial partners, the program has developed Trusted Partnerships with key provincial and territorial stakeholders.
To increase awareness about proposal solicitations the program: presented at conferences, workshops and sector meetings; held two webinars after program launch (approx. 1000 participants); launched an interactive social media platform to encourage potential applicants to collaborate with other partners, provinces/territories, and federal research centres; and, led social media campaigns and host stakeholder engagement webinars and calls with involvement from the provinces and territories.
Starting in 2018, requests for letters of interests (LOI) will be solicited from a broad range of eligible recipients such as industry, academia and consortia via open, advertised calls. Only the successful LOI applicants will be invited to submit full project proposals.
