January 21, 2015

The federal government has announced that the University of Alberta will receive $16.5 M through the Research Support Fund (RSF) to help support research overhead costs. The RSF, formerly known as the Indirect Costs Program, provides funding to universities and colleges to help them meet costs of research that are not covered by the direct investment in postsecondary research provided through the tri-council agencies. “The Research Support Fund is essential in maintaining our labs and equipment, providing administrative support, and in the planning, coordination, and set-up of these collaborative research projects,” said uAlberta researcher Amit Kumar, NSERC Industrial Research Chair in Energy and Environmental Systems Engineering. RSF News Release | uAlberta News Release
