International Consortium Initiatives

In order to address many of key scientific questions very large-scale research projects involving scientists from different countries were needed. International Consortium Initiatives (ICIs) provided a unique opportunity for Canadian researchers to take the lead in cutting edge, international, large-scale genomics research projects, which will further enhance the status of Canada and Canadian scientists in the global community.

The scale, scope and complexity of ICIs require significant input from Genome Canada, working with the scientists and other key stakeholders, in both the development of the proposal and the on-going governance and oversight.
