Call for proposals: Bioeconomy

International collaborator(s)

Your team must include a US-based researcher who assumes the role of Principal Investigator (PI) for the NSF grant. The PI must meet the NSF eligibility requirements and is responsible for submitting the complete NSF application package to NSF.

Your partnership may include other US researchers who meet the NSF eligibility requirements. The current competition includes the US National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), the Research Council of Finland (RCF), Innovation Funding Agency Business Finland (BF), the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST), the National Research Foundation of Korea (NRF), the Ministry of Science and Information and Communication Technology of the Republic of Korea (MSIT), and the UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) as partner funding agencies. As such, you may also collaborate with researchers from Finland, Japan, Republic of Korea and/or the UK. These researchers must meet the eligibility requirements of their respective funding organizations to receive funding; they cannot receive funding from NSERC or SSHRC.

To increase the impact of Canadian research in the global research community, you may incorporate other international collaborators into your NSERC proposal. However, these researchers must secure their own sources of funding to cover the cost of their research activities. You may interact with foreign colleagues in a variety of ways to enhance collaboration and increase your project's impact. Refer to the Tri-agency guide on financial administration for more information on the eligibility of expenses you may incur in support of such collaborations.
