In April of 2020, the Innovation Fund Provincial Oversight Committee (IFPOC) gave SEAMO the opportunity to both repurpose 2019 Innovation Fund monies and fast track the 2020 competition in support of COVID-19 research. 

Due to this expedited competition, we were able to fund six (6) COVID-19 related research projects. These projects strive to better understand the virus while developing innovative solutions to combat COVID-19. You can find the list of successful applicants on our website.

As a result, we will not be hosting our usual Innovation Fund Competition this fall. We thank those who have already shown interest in this funding opportunity and look forward to your applications next year when we resume our normal annual competition. 

If you have any questions about the Innovation Fund or the application process check out our Funding Opportunities Page.
