NSERC Dashboard


The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) is the largest funder of science and engineering research in Canada. With funding from the Government of Canada, NSERC supports the world-class research of over 41,000 talented students and professors at universities and colleges across the country with an annual budget of $1.1 billion.

NSERC provides support for every stage of research—from first discovery to final innovation. These include investments in S&T priority areas that keep Canada on the leading edge of opportunities for future growth; and in strategic areas that are developed in consultation with industry, academia and the Government of Canada.

With the NSERC Dashboard, you will find a province-by-province breakdown of where NSERC invests its funding, and the benefits those investments are creating for Canadians. You can also generate your own reports containing the essential facts and figures you need.
