Proof of Principle : Phase I
Application Deadline: February 17, 2015
The Proof of Principle (POP) Phase I program provides funding for proof of principle research projects of up to 12 months duration designed to advance discoveries/inventions towards commercializable technologies, with a view to attract new investment, create new science-based businesses, organizations and initiatives, and ultimately improve health outcomes for Canadians. Research projects across all four pillars of CIHR are eligible for this program. Note that the end product is not required to generate revenue, but there must be a demonstrated market and opportunity for your product. Applications for the continuation of a research project funded through the POP Phase I grant must progress from Phase I to Phase II.
In order for a research project to be appropriate for POP Phase I, the research should be at the stage where:
o the intellectual property (IP) that needs to be protected (or is protected) has been identified and described;
o the product/process/service, and what will be commercialized have been identified;
o the IP has been subjected to an initial technology assessment.
Funds available – $2,240,000 for approximately 14 grants
