Connecting with the community on a renewed Partnerships Program

Program news Professors

August 28, 2018


NSERC has begun redesigning its Research Partnerships Program in support of scientific research projects between academic researchers and various partners. The new program aims to offer Canadian researchers, industry, entrepreneurs, and not-for-profit organizations a single point of entry to rapidly develop and grow research partnerships. This redesign will allow for Research Partnerships to be better adapted to the funding landscape. 

Upcoming community briefing sessions

NSERC will be hosting a series of targeted briefing sessions with the community to share an update on the current status of the renewal and seek input on the proposed structure and features of the program.

Representatives from the research community will be invited to attend one of the briefings taking place this fall.

Further details on locations and dates for the briefings will be made available on a soon to be launched page dedicated to the Research Partnerships Renewal.
