Test Your Concept for Climate Action and Awareness Fund


The official call for applications for the 2021 Climate Action and Awareness Fund Competition is now open, with a Letter of Intent deadline of June 10th, 2021.


The objective of this funding is to support projects that will strengthen Canada’s science capacity to identify, accelerate, and evaluate mitigation actions towards achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 in Canada.


On May 11, 12 and 13, SPARC will be hosting Test Your Concept sessions where an interdisciplinary panel will provide constructive feedback to lead applicants on their research concepts. Researchers from either campus can visit the registration page to sign up for these sessions.
