This competition is open to emerging and established clusters of research excellence in all disciplines on the Vancouver campus, and we welcome applications from both previously funded and new clusters. Applicants may select a budget term of one or two years. Cluster leads must submit a notice of intent to apply through the VP Research & Innovation’s enhanced online application system at https://apply.research.ubc.ca by November 1, 2021.
