Operating

Operating grants cover the costs associated with carrying out research. They are typically used to pay for supplies, services and salaries of research personnel. Most of these awards are investigator-driven, and generally do not require contributions from the institution or other partners. Some, however, are large-scale institutional awards. The largest of these is the Ontario Research Fund-Research Excellence, which will fund up to one-third of an approved project’s costs. The remaining two-thirds must be secured from eligible partners.
