DFC Launches Call for Research Proposals – Dairy Research Cluster 3 (2018-2023)


Since 2010, Dairy Farmers of Canada (DFC) has been a partner of the Canadian Agri-Science Clusters Initiative of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) as part of the strategic framework Growing Forward 1 (2010-2013) and Growing Forward 2 (2013-2018). This Initiative allowed us to take a more coordinated and strategic approach to address our national research priorities.

In preparation for the Dairy Research Cluster 3 application under the next agriculture policy framework, DFC, in collaboration with its partners the Canadian Dairy Network and Novalait Inc., is launching a “Call for Research Proposals”. DFC invites all Canadian scientists to respond to this call. Please note that DFC does not fund research conducted by private companies.

This call for proposals is launched within the Canadian scientific community for the submission of innovative and structured research proposals for the dairy sector on the basis of the targeted outcomes and investment priorities identified in the new national dairy research strategy and the priorities of our partners. Research proposals will be selected through an evaluation process based on the relevance for the industry and the scientific quality. The selected proposals will be integrated in the scientific program of the next Dairy Research Cluster.

Note: DFC is forging ahead with the development of a proposal aimed at this AAFC program, even though the program has not yet been officially announced by AAFC. Therefore, there is no guarantee of funds at this point.
