2020 Horizon Global Platform Competition


Up to $125,000 per year (including indirect costs) for a maximum of four years


2020 Horizon Global Platform Competition aims to support international research collaborations and position Canada and Canadian researchers as strategic partners at the international level.

This is achieved through two mechanisms. The first mechanism involves joint calls with international agencies on topics of international relevance. The second mechanism funds the participation of Canadian researchers on international research projects supported by major global platforms.

Eligible Applicants

A Canadian researcher or research team can submit only one application per funded Horizon 2020 project. It is important to note that the eligibility requirements for New Frontiers in Research Fund (NFRF) 2020 Horizon Global Platform grants are not necessarily the same as for Horizon 2020.

Note: The NFRF 2020 Horizon Global Platform competition falls under the second mechanism by providing funding for Canadian researchers who are partners on successful projects funded through eligible calls under Horizon 2020.

Eligible Expenses

Eligible expenses related to the direct costs of research are outlined in the Tri-Agency Guide on Financial Administration with exceptions for this program noted in the Use of Grant Funds. For more detailed information, please click the link indicated below.
