Description: The objective of the program is to support innovative research in its initial stages that will lead to the development of mature research projects. Proposals should not be full-fledged, stand-alone projects that aim at advanced research results. RDI RDI grants are not intended to support ongoing programs of research. Applicants must clearly distinguish their RDI project from previous or ongoing research. The proposal should address and develop a distinct, delimited research issue, present clearly defined plans for the research, and propose a budget that is fully justified by those plans.

The program supports research activities which can lead to the development of innovative programs of research. These activities may include intellectual exchanges, critical analyses, research collaboration and new ways of producing, structuring and mobilizing knowledge. In addition, the program encourages developmental activities that promote interdisciplinary, cross-disciplinary and multidisciplinary research.
