Call for Proposals


Now accepting Proof Of Concept LOI's: Deadline September 30, 2019

With the increased investment in research through the Canadian Beef Cattle Check-off the BCRC has committed to provide research funding in two key areas that have previously had limited funding:

  •  proof of concept research before pursuing as a larger, more defined funding request.
  • clinical trials to validate certain practices or technologies discovered through research projects and/or to facilitate the adaption of technologies that have been utilized in other sectors, commodities or countries. 

The BCRC has committed funding to short-term projects in these two areas, with a maximum of $50,000 per project. Ideally this funding would be leveraged by other government and/or industry funds to leverage checkoff investments. Project length would be 6 months to 1 year unless a rationale can be provided for a longer period of time. More information on the call as well as the form to submit an LOI can be found  at: http://www.beefresearch.ca/for-researchers/forms-and-downloads.cfm

The BCRC's next call for Letters of Intent (LOIs) for priority area research will be announced first on the BCRC blog. Click here to subscribe.

Calls for LOIs or Proposals by other funding bodies having research objectives in alignment with the Canadian Beef Research and Technology Transfer Strategy will also be announced on the BCRC Blog.
