In May 2010, Genome Canada launched the 2010 Large-Scale Applied Research Project Competition, for large-scale research projects focused on the application of genomics research such that there would be a high potential for benefits for Canada (with an emphasis on economic benefits) to be realized or initiated before the end of the project. The competition included funding for projects targeting the areas of forestry and the environment, designated the Targeted Competition, as well as funding for projects targeting Genome Canada's other strategic sectors (agriculture, fisheries and human health), designated the Multi-Sector Competition.
Results were announced on March 25, 2011, Nine (9) projects were supported in the Targeted Competition for a total budget of $57,564,088 over three years with a maximum of $29.1M from Genome Canada as well as seven (7) projects in the Multi-Sector Competition for a total budget of $65,658,131 over three years with a maximum of $30.1M from Genome Canada. Combined, the total budget will be $121M with a total maximum contribution from Genome Canada of $60.2M.
