NSERC has launched a pilot funding opportunity to support investigator-initiated individual and team projects that broadly integrate or transcend disciplines to advance knowledge in the natural sciences and engineering (NSE). Full applications submitted to this NSERC program will be reviewed by the new tri-agency interdisciplinary peer review committee.

Discovery Horizons grants are expected to be between $50,000 and $100,000 per year.  For this pilot year, NSERC is expecting to award 10 to 20 grants.

The deadline for letters of intent is June 15, 2021.
