As part of the opportunity to renew the ArcticNet Network of Centres of Excellence through the 2018 NCE Competition, ArcticNet is pleased to announce a Call for Letters of Intent (LOI) with submissions due June 5, 2018.
LOI Applications from all eligible Canadian researchers whose expertise is applicable in the North are welcome and new applicants are strongly encouraged to submit. Priority will be given to proposed projects with multidisciplinary teams and appropriate partners. Geographically, ArcticNet includes the Inuit Nunangat and, as part of its renewal, is proposed to extend to include the Yukon, the continental Northwest Territories and the Kivalliq Region of Nunavut.
Successful LOI will be used to demonstrate the potential breadth and depth of the ArcticNet Research Strategy in its submission to the 2018 NCE Competition. Decisions on LOI applications will be announced by 29 June 2018. Successful LOI teams will be invited to submit Full Proposals by 15 November 2018. (Note that preparation of Team Full Proposals will need to be undertaken prior to ArcticNet NCE 2019-2024 funding being secured.)
We invite those interested in submitting an LOI application to carefully read the following documents regarding research priorities, eligibility and evaluation criteria, and the LOI submission process :
