Project opportunity in response to COVID-19 pandemic


If you are a researcher from a Canadian college or university who is eligible to apply to NSERC grants, and is interested in helping an organization address one or more challenges or questions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, please select the project(s) and submit your email address. We will connect you with the organization that submitted the challenge or question.

Industry, not-for-profit and public sector organizations

If you are from a Canadian industry, not-for-profit or public sector organization that is addressing a challenge or question related to the COVID-19 pandemic, and could benefit from scientific, technical or research expertise in natural science and engineering, please submit them to NSERC by completing this survey. NSERC will communicate these publicly to Canada’s post-secondary institutions by posting the information on our website and connect you with interested university and college researchers.

By facilitating these connections, we aim to increase collaborations between organizations and researchers to create partnerships. Together, collaborating teams can apply to NSERC Alliance grants or the NSERC College and Community Innovation program.

Once the survey is submitted, please allow 2-5 business days for your challenges and questions to be posted.

Note: If you wish to have your challenge removed from this page, please email NSERC at NSERCOVID-19@nserc-crsng.gc.ca.
