On June 16, 2014 Genome Canada, in partnership with the Western Grains Research Foundation (WGRF), launched a Request for Applications for the 2014 Large-Scale Applied Research Project Competition: Genomics and Feeding the Future. The Competition aimed to support research projects to create new knowledge and inform public policy for Canada’s agri-food and fisheries & aquaculture sectors and contribute solutions that can help feed the world’s growing population.
Results of the competition were announced on July 21, 2015. Eleven projects received a total investment of $93 million: $30.8 million of federal funding through Genome Canada; $5 million from WGRF towards three of the projects; and, the balance from project co-funders.
