Description:

The Genomic Applications Partnership Program (GAPP) represents a key element in Genome Canada's strategic plan towards funding downstream research and development (R&D) projects that are driven by challenges and opportunities facing users of genomics based technologies. The GAPP aims to: Promote the application of genomics-derived solutions to address key sector challenges or opportunities facing Users - User "pull"; Promote commercialization of genomics technologies by enabling the transfer of genomics-derived solutions from Academia to Users as well as de-risking and incentivizing follow-on investment from public and private partners; Increase the socio-economic impact of genomics research by accelerating its translation to application or market; and, Create and foster a more productive interface between Academia and Users.

There is a two-stage application process for this program: Expression of Interest (EOI) and Full Proposal. EOIs and full proposals must be submitted to Genome Canada through a Genome Centre.

Application Details:

There are two categories of partners in GAPP projects: Academics and Users. To be eligible for funding, each project must represent an active partnership between the Academic and the User. An Academic is defined as an independent investigator who is a faculty member employed by a Canadian post-secondary organization or their affiliated institutions including hospitals and research institutes. Users include companies, industry consortia, government departments or agencies, or not-for-profits that have a credible plan for exploiting project results for the socio-economic benefit of Canada. The User must show that it has the expertise and resources to put the plan into effect or the means, as well as the intention, to acquire this capacity.

Genome Canada will provide support for small-scale proof-of-concept or pilot projects through to large-scale projects, ranging in size from $300,000 to $6 million in total project budget, with the Genome Canada investment not to exceed more than 1/3 of the total investment in the project by all parties. The remaining 2/3 must be secured through co-funding (see Section 9 and Appendix 2 for more details on co-funding)

INDIRECT COSTS ARE NOT ELIGIBLE

NOTE: All Letters of Intent and Full Applications must be processed through Research Development & Services for institutional approval. Requests for Institutional approvals should be received no less than 3 days prior to the posted Sponsor deadline. A ROLA Proposal (bearing applicant, Chair and Dean electronic approvals) is required for each submission.
