2014 Major Science Initiatives Special competition

Context and objectives

The CFI expanded its support of the ongoing operations and maintenance (O&M) needs of national research facilities through a Major Science Initiatives (MSI) special competition. For this competition, eligibility was broadened to include:

  • A greater range of facilities, both in size and complexity, across all research disciplines
  • Facilities with diverse levels of CFI investment (not restricted to a one-time $25 million capital investment)
  • Facilities without previous CFI investments.

Funding awarded under this MSI special competition was intended to secure and strengthen unique national research facilities that support world-class research, the loss of which would represent a serious setback for Canada.
