The objective of the Exploration stream is to support high riskhigh reward and interdisciplinary research. It seeks to inspire projects that bring disciplines together beyond traditional disciplinary or common interdisciplinary approaches by research teams with the capacity to explore something new that might fail, but has the potential for significant impact. The 2019 competition is open to teams composed of established and/or early career researchers, and includes mandatory notice of intent to apply (NOI) and letter of intent to apply (LOI) stages.
