Early Researcher Award Information Session

The Ministry of Research, Innovation and Science (MRIS) has launched Round 13 of the Early Researcher Award (ERA). The ERA program helps promising, recently-appointed Ontario researchers build their research teams of undergraduates, graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, research assistants, associates, and technicians.

The ERA program will provide funding up to $100,000 for each award (plus $40,000 for indirect costs), and must be matched by an additional $50,000 (cash not in-kind) from the division/department and/or a partner organization. Further details on the program can be found on the funding opportunity page.

MRIS will be holding an information session for the ERA Round 13 on Wednesday June 7th, 2017. Please note that this information session is open to all research institutions in the area.
