The Canadian Mountain Network Modes of Research Webinar
On April 3, 2018, the Canadian Mountain Network (CMN), the University of Alberta, the Arctic Institute of Community-Based Research (AICBR), and Yukon College hosted a live webinar presenting the CMNs three Modes of Research (Researcher-led, Partnership-driven, and Indigenous-led) for this major research initiative.
The CMN is preparing a full application for the Networks of Centres of Excellence (NCE) competition due at the end of July 2018 and will use successful 2018 Preparatory Call for Proposal applications to demonstrate the results and research the Network will be able to fund if successful. Preparatory Call Proposal applicants will be required to make a deliberate choice at the onset of a project as to which Mode best fits a particular project’s needs as well as its contributions to the network as a whole. The Webinar provides additional clarification and details on the Modes to assist in the preparation of applications.
Networks of Centres of Excellence is a Federally-funded program designed “to mobilize Canada’s research talent in the academic, private, public, and not-for-profit sectors and apply it to the task of developing the economy and improving the quality of life of Canadians.” The full application determines which network applicants will be funded as an NCE Network.

All attendees are asked to give feedback after the live presentation of the webinar.
