About the Applied Research Fund

MMSB partnered with Memorial University’s Leslie Harris Centre of Regional Policy and Development (the Harris Centre) in 2010 to stimulate research into Newfoundland and Labrador’s waste management needs and opportunities.

The fund was designed to:

  • Develop an inventory of issues relating to waste management in the province.
  • Support research opportunities at each stage of the waste management process.
  • Identify new waste management solutions for Newfoundland and Labrador.

Managed by the Harris Centre, the fund allows Memorial faculty, staff, post-doctoral fellows and graduate students to apply for project funding, up to a maximum of $15,000 per project. The total operating cost contribution by MMSB is $100,000.
