The Office of Research Services has received the following information which we are forwarding to our e-mail list members:
Compute Canada is now accepting applications to our annual Resource Allocation Competitions (RAC): Resources for Research Groups (RRG) Competition and the Research Platforms and Portals (RPP) Competition.
These competitions are open to all researchers based at Canadian academic institutions who are eligible to apply for funding to the federal granting agencies. Applications are evaluated for both technical feasibility and scientific excellence, and researchers who need more resources than are available through the Rapid Access Service (RAS) are encouraged to apply.
How to apply
All proposals must be submitted electronically through the Compute Canada DataBase (CCDB) by Thursday, November 16, 2017 at 10:00 PM Eastern Standard Time.
If this is your first time applying to the Resource Allocation Competitions, we strongly encourage you to consult with the Compute Canada technical staff responsible for the systems you intend to use. If you do not know the appropriate technical staff, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note: an updated Canadian Common CV is required for the submission of an RPP or an RRG application. Please consult the Compute Canada CCV Submission Guide for further instructions.
