The fundamental mission of the Institut de finance mathématique de Montréal (IFM) is to promote and coordinate the training and education of highly qualified specialists in mathematical finance, and to foster the development of research in support of this training.
Young Researchers and Senior Researchers program
This program offers financial assistance to an annual maximum of $20,000 per project, and the possibility of two renewals (maximum of three years). At the end of the third year, any unused funds must be reimbursed to the Institute.
Eligibility: Professor/researcher affiliated with a member institution of the Institut de Finance Mathématique de Montréal (IFM2). Teams should mostly be composed of professors from affiliated universities. Teams with professors from unaffiliated universities are also eligible.

l'Institut de recherche Robert-Sauvé en santé et en sécurité du travail (IRSST) is a leader in occupational health and safety research in Quebec. The IRSST’s knowledge transfer advisors provide support to researchers in their work with different partners.
Types of grants
Every year, the IRSST provides funding of $3.4 million for research projects and activities by external researchers. Funding is awarded by project or activity, with follow-up mechanisms that promote interaction with the IRSST.
IRSST grant programs
- The Competitive Research Grant Program (formerly "Funded Research") is intended for researchers conducting occupational health and safety research. The work may include scientifically conducted studies, analyses or developments that are likely to contribute to the advancement of knowledge.
Two competitions are held annually. Applications should be received by the first Tuesday of September or of February, and should be accompanied by the Research Protocol Form, available on the IRSST website.
- The Collaborative Research Grant Program covers the same type of work as the Competitive research grant program, but differs in one aspect: the research objectives are defined in collaboration with the IRSST and fall within its priority themes.
- The Collaborative Activity Grant Program is defined in collaboration with the IRSST, with a more limited cost and duration than that of a research project. Work for this program mainly takes the form of literature reviews, preliminary, exploratory or feasibility studies, statistical analyses or expertise activities.
Special programs may be announced during the year. These result from specific agreements between the IRSST and other scientific organizations (funding agencies, research institutes, structured research networks, etc.). These agreements establish grant programs focusing on specific areas of occupational health and safety research.
For questions about the programs or about preparing a grant application, researchers can contact the research management advisors.
IRSST priority themes
Grant applications preferably correspond to one of the Institute’s seven fields of research identified below. Researchers may contact the leader of the research field in question for more information.
- Noise and vibration
- Protective equipment
- Occupational rehabilitation
- Safety of industrial tools, machines and processes
- Chemical substances and biological agents
- Musculoskeletal disorders
- Work context and OHS
