NSERC-French Agence nationale de la recherche (ANR) call for proposals on quantum technologies

Receiving your funding and starting your project

Award letter, terms and conditions

If your application is approved for funding, you will receive an award letter and must adhere to its terms and conditions. ANR will inform your French collaborator(s).

Transfer of funds and start date

Your award letter will indicate the start date of your project. NSERC will normally transfer your grant funds to your university within 30 days of that start date. NSERC and ANR intend to coordinate award timing where possible. However, because each agency may have different funding cycles, it is possible that some projects will have different start and end dates.

Research agreements and intellectual property

NSERC recommends that you and your university follow best practices by signing a research agreement that defines the intellectual property rights and obligations of all organizations involved in your research project. The agreement must be aligned with NSERC’s policy on intellectual property, which promotes the use and/or exploitation of knowledge and open access to research results funded by NSERC.


  • NSERC claims no rights of ownership to any intellectual property generated from projects funded by Alliance International;
  • NSERC’s policy on intellectual property stipulates that each of your students must maintain their right to defend their thesis without delays or impediments;
  • All participants, including any trainees, should consult this policy to ensure that they are aware of their rights and obligations.
