About the John R. Evans Leaders Opportunity Fund:
The funding is part of the John R. Evans Leaders Fund (JELF), designed to help universities attract and retain the best researchers at a time of intense international competition.
To this end, JELF offers institutions the opportunity to:
- Acquire infrastructure for their leading research faculty to undertake cutting-edge research; and
- Create competitive research support packages in the form of infrastructure and a portion of the operating and maintenance costs from the CFI, coupled with direct research costs from partner organizations.
