Research Nova Scotia Funding Recipients

Congratulations to all our research funding recipients.
Learn more about our mission-oriented approach to research funding.

Research Nova Scotia continues to explore opportunities with its partners to address the COVID-19 outbreak. Partnerships with Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Nova Scotia COVID-19 Health Research CoalitionGenome Atlantic, and others, have enabled our researchers to conduct ground-breaking research in the areas of vaccines and therapeutics, diagnostics, epidemiology, fundamental science, social and behavioural sciences, public health, and more. If you have a COVID-19 related project you would like to discuss please contact us.

Research Nova Scotia accepts applications for match funding for projects selected by the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) and Genome Canada (GC). If you are considering developing a proposal or requesting funds outside of these two streams, we invite you to learn more about our mission-oriented approach to research.

Health Research Grants contribute to healthy people and health care systems for Nova Scotians by generating evidence, outcomes and/or knowledge in support of one of our four missions. Grants include opportunities identified by the researchers and their post-secondary institutions, as well as capacity-building initiatives such as early-career research grants or partnership funding.

Strategic Initiatives

Research Nova Scotia convenes project teams to address gaps in current research, take advantage of fast-moving opportunities, or commission research in important areas that are excluded from, not suitable for, or are too small for existing funding opportunities. Recently funded strategic initiatives are listed below.

Research Nova Scotia is proud to provide financial support to research trainees with exceptional potential who are engaged in research at participating Nova Scotia institutions through its Scotia Scholars Award and Student Challenges.
