ISED Contribution Renewal, Upcoming Funding Opportunity and Website Refresh

Together with our funding partner Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED), we are pleased to announce the Contribution Agreement Renewal for NDRIO’s 2021-22 fiscal year, along with the release of NDRIO’s 2021-22 Corporate Plan. We invite you to learn more about our progress to date, and areas of focus in the year ahead.

Upcoming Launch of Inaugural Funding Opportunity

As our team prepares to launch NDRIO’s Inaugural Funding Opportunity (IFO) in early May, we wanted to share preliminary information with our Members and other research community stakeholders. Be sure to visit our IFO webpage for more details about the scope, objectives and eligibility requirements for the IFO, along with application process and timeline information. We look forward to sharing more about the IFO in the coming weeks.

Welcoming New Senior Leadership Team Members

We’re excited to welcome the newest members of our senior leadership team. Each person brings more than 20 years’ experience in their chosen field and will strongly position our organization for additional growth as we continue to scale up.

Refreshed NDRIO Website

We’re also pleased to share our newly designed website. The site is not only more visually engaging, but it was designed with users in mind with features like streamlined navigation and the ability to subscribe for NDRIO updates quickly and easily. We welcome your feedback as we continue to expand upon our website.

As always, if you have any questions or comments about our updates, please reach out to us at
