Pre-announcement of a call for the creation of Innovation Networks

To facilitate the free-flow of ideas, the Innovation for Defence Excellence and Security (IDEaS) program will support the creation of Innovation Networks which will work in areas of interest to Canadian defence and security. A new call for the creation of Innovation Networks will be issued in the coming weeks.

This call will invite research proposals from multi-disciplinary teams in the field of 5G Networks. Teams must be led by an investigator from a Canadian university, and can be composed of investigators from Canadian universities and educational institutions, not-for-profit organizations, for-profit organizations, provincial/territorial/municipal governments, and international universities and education institutions. Teams will be encouraged to develop and submit interdisciplinary research proposals addressing one or several areas identified in the call Science & Technology (S&T) Challenge Statement. 

Full details of the research areas of interest, available funding, eligibility, and how to apply will be made available when the call is announced.
