The objective of the International stream is to support international research collaborations and position Canada and Canadian researchers as strategic partners at the international level, through two mechanisms. The first mechanism involves joint calls with international agencies on topics of international relevance. The second mechanism funds Canadian researchers’ participation on international research projects supported by major global platforms.   

The NFRF 2022 Horizon Global Platform competition falls under the second mechanism, by providing funding for Canadian researchers who are partners on successful projects funded through eligible calls under Horizon 2022.  

It is expected that the Canadian researcher or research team will be an integral part of the larger Horizon Europe research team that was awarded a grant.
