New NSERC grants that will provide financial support for research to address challenges and knowledge needs of Federal Departments and Agencies
NSERC will provide $100,000 to $500,000 per year for two years to support research (in the natural sciences and engineering fields) that addresses federal departments and agencies priorities or knowledge gaps. Those research projects will be collaborations between Canada’s academic researchers and stakeholders from Departments (they could also include other partners from private, public and/or not-for-profit partner organization(s)).
These Alliance Missions grants will cover 100% of the eligible costs of research for a two-year period (no financial contribution is expected from your Department). The proposed projects will catalyze the development of partnerships between university researchers and partner organizations focused on addressing challenges and knowledge gaps you have identified. The project proposals can also be focused on addressing challenges that have emerged as a result of the pandemic and/or respond to new economic opportunities. Applications will be accepted any time until November 30, 2021.
Endocrine Disruptors – Knowledge Gaps
The issue of endocrine disruptors is a good example of knowledge gaps of federal departments and agencies, particularly regarding a collective national vision to address endocrine disruptors.
ICEDA offers its help to all members wishing to propose a project within the framework of these NSERC grants.
