2014 (Fall) Strategic Impact Grant Program

Three projects were funded under the second call for the CFN Strategic Impact Grant Program. This Program was non-traditional and unique in that we were seeking researchers with potential projects that were interested in achieving greater impact by collaborating with other like-minded researchers with potential projects in similar areas and with interest in partnering with industry groups, knowledge users and trainees on a wider basis.
