Research Incubator Awards (RIA) provide seed funding to CRBLM Regular Members for interdisciplinary projects of exceptional innovation and broad significance to the field. This support is intended to provide a basis for innovative project development and pilot research ultimately leading to external funding for the ongoing collaborative work.
Eligibility: CRBLM Regular Members
Deadline: March 29, 2018
Amount: maximum of $10,000 is available per project*
*Project teams that include a Concordia member and/or that offer the opportunity for students to be co-supervised by members at Concordia are eligible for an additional $5000 in funding, for a total maximum of $15,000.
- To support intersectoral, multicenter (university) and multidisciplinary pilot projects in the domains of language and music development, neuroscience, performance, function and dysfunction
- To promote excellence in basic and applied research in those areas covered by our mandate
- To encourage the formation of working groups developing projects which make a potential long-term significant contribution to our research mission, and with a high potential for attracting external funding
- Likelihood of development into a project that would attract external support
- Quality of proposal: hypothesis, methodology, population, analysis, budget justification
- The degree of innovation and impact of the project
- The scope and novelty of the interdisciplinary collaboration
- Feasibility of the research project
