Download and read the RD&E priorities for investment 

 

The FRDC invests through a flexible approach. Part of this approach allows the Research Advisory Committees (RACs), Industry Partnership Agreements (IPAs) and Subprograms to call for applications based on their priorities up to three times per year in November, April and August. If the RACs, IPAs and Subprograms do not have any priorities they wish to address, a call for applications may NOT occur.

A summary of the yearly process is as follows:

The FIRST CALL for applications may be developed in January, or as required, following the RAC, subprogram and IPA meetings.

  • Closing date for applications is in February.
  • Applications will be assessed by the RACs, subprograms and IPAs in March.
  • The FRDC will assess these applications in April and notify applicants in April–May.

The SECOND CALL for applications may be developed in April, or as required, following the RAC, subprogram and IPA meetings.

  • Closing date for applications is in June.
  • Applications will be assessed by the RACs, subprograms and IPAs in July.  
  • The FRDC will assess these applications in August and notify applicants in August–September.

The THIRD CALL for applications may be developed in August, or as required, following the RAC, subprogram and IPA meetings.

  • Closing date for applications is in September.
  • Applications will be assessed by the RACs, subprograms and IPAs in October.
  • The FRDC will assess these applications in November and notify applicants in November–December.
