Academic - Step 2 - Full proposal submission

To complete this form, you should have submitted a letter of intent (LOI) and been invited to proceed to the full proposal stage by BC Dairy. Full proposal submissions that have not been submitted through the LOI stage may be considered for review upon discussion with BC Dairy staff at least two months prior to the submission deadline.

This process is for  academic research. The Academic stream is for projects conducted by faculty, associates, and graduate students of post-secondary institutions. An academic project will generally result in a peer-reviewed publication. This annual competition is designed to engage academic, technical, and industry experts to design and implement the most research with the greatest impact on dairy farms and the industry as a whole.

The general timeline is:

January - Letter of Intent (LOI) intake opens

February - Pre-LOI research meetings available upon request; 

Researchers given a chance to bounce ideas off of all or part of the technical working group to better address the issues facing the industry 

March 15 - Deadline for LOI submissions

April - Invitations to submit full proposals for all LOIs that meet the criteria
