Genomics Application Partnerships Program (GAPP) Competition
Genome Canada Program: Alberta Focus
GAPP is designed for end-users (may be a start-up company) to partner with academics for the development of genomic tools applied to industry driven problems. As part of this program, end-users will need to invest a minimum of 1/3 (can be a combination of in-kind and cash) of the project budget and Genome Canada will invest a maximum of 1/3 of the project budget to support genomics based activities. GAPP is an ongoing program with a 3-stage process: EOI, Pitch, and Supplementary Proposal. The first two stages are due on a rolling intake basis (EOI and Pitch) with the last stage (Supplementary Proposal) having a deadline. The next deadline for the Round 7 Supplementary proposal is: 30th September 2016.
