Earlier Deadline for Preliminary Applications for NSERC 2015 SNG Competition

NSERC would like to give you advance notice of a change in the deadline for Preliminary Applications for the NSERC Strategic Network Grants (SNG) competition.   The deadline for the 2015 Preliminary Applications is April 1, 2015.

This change will help align the Strategic Network competition with the Strategic Projects competition. Applicants to the program will see this change reflected on the NSERC Partnerships webpage and it will also be highlighted shortly in the program literature update on NSERC’s website. In the meantime, please share this information with your faculty and research administration staff.

Please contact Alison Janidlo (alison.janidlo@nserc-crsng.gc.ca) with any questions regarding the NSERC Strategic Network competition.



NSERC Engage Grant

Engage Grants are designed to give companies that operate from a Canadian base access to the unique knowledge and expertise available at Canadian universities. These grants are intended to foster the development of new research partnerships between an academic researcher and a company that have never collaborated before, by supporting short-term research and development projects aimed at addressing a company-specific problem in the natural sciences or engineering fields.

Please note that applicants seeking funding for travel and meeting activities to establish contact with new potential industrial partners should apply for an Interaction Grant.

There is no deadline for the Interaction Grant and the Engage Grant. 

Please click here for the application and more details.

SSHRC Connection Grant

Connection Grants support events and outreach activities geared toward short-term, targeted knowledge mobilization initiatives. These events and activities represent opportunities to exchange knowledge and to engage on research issues of value to those participating. Events and outreach activities funded by a Connection Grant may often serve as a first step toward more comprehensive and longer-term projects potentially eligible for funding through other SSHRC funding opportunities.

There are four application deadlines throughout the year.

Next application Deadline: November 1, 2014

SSHRC Partnership Development Grant

Partnership Development Grants provide support over one to three years to teams/partnerships, led by a project director, to:

  • develop research and related activities in the social sciences and humanities, including knowledge mobilization and the meaningful involvement of students and new scholars, by fostering new partnerships for research and related activities involving existing and/or potential partners; or
  • design and test new partnership approaches for research and/or related activities that may result in best practices or models that either can be adapted by others or have the potential to be scaled up to a regional, national or international level.

Partnership Development Grant proposals are expected to respond to the objectives of the Insight program or the Connection program, or a combination thereof. Please click here for a table of the two programs objectives and more details of the program.

Internal Deadline: Nov 24, 2014
