This event is designed to support those applying to our Seed Fund.
We have partnered with the SURGE science innovation sandbox to support trainees in preparing strong applications.
This virtual half day workshop will introduce the Seed Fund and provide prospective applicants with more information about the program, tips on writing a strong application, and feedback on your ideas and ways to align them with OFI’s strategic priorities.
Researchers from across Canada are welcome to join, regardless of application status. The event will include a deep dive into design thinking and how to define problems from a human perspective.
Participants will also receive guidance on the Seed Fund application. Participation does not guarantee a successful application but it will increase your chances, and provide helpful coaching on grant writing for other opportunities as well.
Our Seed Fund supports ocean-related projects that offer high potential for innovation success but need small amounts of funding to help them move forward — and grow.

Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR), when paired with extensive emissions reductions, is a mitigation strategy to limit warming to 1.5°C as it removes legacy carbon emissions from the atmosphere by augmenting natural processes on ocean and land.
However, in order to meet climate goals, CDR must scale 30 times its present capacity by 2030, which is estimated to require an annual global investment of 1.13 billion USD/year for research and development.

This panel event is focused on the Global Greenhouse Gas Watch, which will provide a valuable tool to support the transparency of global mitigation action.
The system will be built on three components:
Open and unrestricted access to data will ensure a full transparency of system outputs, which will provide globally consistent information that will feed multiple applications including supplementary information to the traditional inventory reporting.
