NSERC’s New Research Partnership Opportunity – the Alliance Grant

The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) is a $1.3 billion research funding organization. NSERC has a new partnership opportunity, the Alliance grant, which encourages university researchers to collaborate with partner organizations, which can be from the private, public or not-for-profit sectors. 

On January 10, Gordon Deveau, Deputy Director (Atlantic) for NSERC will provide an overview of the NSERC Alliance grant and discuss ways the private sector, not-for-profits and the public sector (e.g. provincial departments, municipalities, crown corporations, Indigenous communities) can participate in university-led research projects. A question and answer period will follow.

Livestream will be available for remote attendance:

Remote attendees will have the opportunity to submit questions in real-time.
