    The Ontario Research Fund – Research Excellence (ORF-RE) provides research institutions with funding to support the operational costs of major projects of strategic value to the province.

    The fund provides up to one third of the total value of a project, with the remaining two thirds coming from a combination of private sector and institutional contributions.

    ORF-RE Round 10 has two application funding tiers:

    • Tier 1. Open to all disciplines
      Funds projects from $200,000 to $1,000,000
    • Tier 2. Open to all disciplines
      Funds projects from $1,000,001 to $4,000,000

    This program supports ongoing programs of research with long-term goals rather than a single short-term project or collection of projects. These grants recognize the creativity and innovation that are at the heart of all research advances. These grants provide long term operating funds, but are not meant to support the full costs of a research program. Applicants are encouraged to increase the inclusion and advancement of women and other under-represented groups in the natural sciences and engineering, as one means to enhance excellence in research and training. Discovery Grants are awarded to individual researchers, normally for five years.

    The RTI grants program provides the primary avenue for university researchers in the natural sciences and engineering to obtain up to $150,000 in support for research tools and instruments with a net cost between $7,001 and $250,000. Net cost is defined as the purchase cost of the equipment after any discount from the vendor and before taxes, customs and importation fees, transportation and shipping charges, and assembly and installation costs. The vendor discount must be free of conditions, restrictions or limitations (e.g., cannot be offered in exchange for services from users benefiting the vendor company). The research community is also encouraged to explore other avenues for funding research tools and instruments, including NSERC’s other programs that allow the purchase of equipment as eligible expenses.

    The​ “M.S. YALIN MEMORIAL COLLOQUIUM” (YMC) aims to create an environment for reflection and discussion of the state-of-the-art and challenges on selected topics pertinent to fluvial hydraulics, while generating opportunities for the establishment of connections between young and established researchers. The Colloquium, organized under the auspices of the IAHR Fluvial Hydraulics Committee, is held in memory of Professor M. Selim Yalin, widely known for his contributions in the areas of hydraulic physical modeling, sediment transport and river mechanics.
