Objective

The GAPP funds downstream research and development (R&D) projects that address real world opportunities and challenges defined by “Receptor” organizations such as industry, government, or not-for-profit entities. These organizations should have the expertise, resources and commitment to commercialize or implement the project’s outcomes. Projects must be active collaborations between the Receptor organization (Canadian or international) and a Canadian academic researcher. Both must play an integral role in the project. These projects are co-funded by Receptors and other stakeholders and must have the potential to generate significant social and/or economic benefits for Canada.  

GAPP aims to: 

  • Accelerate the application of Canadian genomics-derived solutions to real-world opportunities and challenges defined by industry and public sector Receptors. 
  • Channel Canada’s genomics capacity into sustainable innovations that benefit Canadians. 
  • Enhance the value of Canadian genomics technologies by de-risking and incentivizing follow-on investment from industry and other partners. 
  • Foster mutually beneficial collaboration and knowledge exchange between Canadian academia and technology receptors.

Eligibility

To be eligible for the GAPP, a project must:

  • Develop and apply a genomics-derived or genomics-enabling tool, product or process to an opportunity or challenge defined by the Receptor(s);
  • Focus on late stage R&D that will position the innovation for near-term implementation/commercialization;
  • Be co-led by an academic and a Receptor organization in partnership, with active and necessary roles for both; and
  • Demonstrate the potential to generate significant social and/or economic benefits for Canada.

How to Apply

All researchers should notify both their Faculty and Diana Frasca (dfrasca@yorku.ca) as soon as possible about their intention to apply. Doing so will both streamline the process of securing Faculty-level support for the partnership and ensure that researchers receive adequate support in application preparation. 

The SIRI Unit in the Office of Research Services, in collaboration with the corresponding Faculty Research Office, will be supporting the development of applications selected to go forward to Genome Canada.

York University researchers are reminded that all applications for external research funding, including Letters of Intent, must be reviewed and approved by the Office of Research Services before they are submitted to the granting agency.  For internal approval, the application must be accompanied by a completed ORS Checklist, which requires the Dean’s signature.  Please send the complete application, with the finalized budget and a completed ORS checklist to sciapps@yorku.ca, five days prior to agency deadline.

ORS is accepting electronic applications – the process is outlined here.
