Research Program: Phase 2

Overview

GRAND's Phase 2 Research Program comprised seven problem areas or "Challenges" deemed of strategic importance to Canada. Each Challenge was addressed through a number of projects focused on one or more specific issues within the overall problem area. Led by academic experts, each project involved industry partners and other stakeholder representatives who helped define, execute, and evaluate the research activities. These Seven Challenges introduced in GRAND's Phase 2 augmented GRAND's original Five Core Capabilities established in PHASE 1.

The transition to Phase 2 projects began in 2014 and continued into 2015.

In Phase 2, GRAND introduced a new kind of collaborative research project called SPARK-GAP. Involving significant co-investment from industry partners, the scope and crosscutting nature of these projects was intended to make a significant impact on the Canadian digital media sector.
