Acknowledging NSERC and SSHRC

You must acknowledge NSERC and SSHRC support in any communications or presentations about your research supported by this initiative. You are also expected to acknowledge the relevant partner funding agencies (NSF, CSIRO and/or UKRI) in any reports or publications arising from research funded by their grant.

Reporting progress

You must report regularly on how you use the funds from the grant, the activities you carry out during your funded project, and the outcomes of the project. You will be informed of reporting requirements upon receiving your award letter. You must report separately to NSERC or SSHRC in addition to any reporting requirements imposed on the NSF portion of the grant.

Notifying NSERC or SSHRC about changes

Subsequent instalments of your grant depend on (1) a demonstrated need for NSERC or SSHRC funds and (2) adherence to all other conditions specified in the terms and conditions of the award.

You must notify NSERC or SSHRC of any changes to the Canadian research team and if any of your international collaborators leave the project. In this case you should discuss with NSERC or SSHRC the impact on your ability to achieve the original goals of the project and whether the project may need to be amended or terminated.

If you fail to provide the requested feedback, your subsequent applications may be denied.

Extension of grants

If you cannot complete your planned research activities within the specified term of your grant, you must notify NSERC or SSHRC. You may then be allowed an additional one-year period to complete your project using existing funds.
