In 2018, the federal government announced a new stream of the Research Support Fund, the Incremental Project Grants (IPG), to provide postsecondary institutions with additional funding to pay for the indirect costs of research. The total IPG budget is $231.3 million over five years and $58.8 million per year after that.

The IPG support four areas of activities:

  • innovation and commercialization;
  • facilities renewal, including deferred maintenance;
  • information resources, including digital resources, open access, and databases; and
  • equity, diversity and faculty renewal.

Please visit the Research Support Fund website for additional information on the IPG stream of the Research Support Fund.

At the University of Ottawa, the IPG is used to support activities such as: the renewal and maintenance of animal care facilities and core facilities; the implementation of knowledge mobilization and commercialization support activities for researchers and students; and the continued implementation of the Canada Research Chairs Institutional Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Action Plan.
