Government announces buckets of CFI money for research infrastructure
Yesterday, the federal government announced grants totalling more than $665-million for 133 projects at 41 institutions through three major CFI infrastructure programs. Roughly $250-million was awarded through each of the Leading Edge Fund (LEF) and the New Initiatives Fund (NIF), with an additional $150-million was awarded through Infrastructure Operating Grants. The program is funding projects running the gamut of research, including research into space exploration, alternative energy, biodiversity, telecommunications, biomedical research, and manufacturing.
