New funding to advance climate change research in Canada

Program news

November 5, 2018

NSERC is pleased to announce a jointly funded initiative with Environment and Climate Change Canada and Health Canada to accelerate climate change science in Canadian universities. 

The funding will support research projects related to climate change that: protect the health of Canadians by advancing innovation for energy efficient cooling technologies; accelerate knowledge of the role of forests in ecosystem services; and improve our understanding of carbon dynamics in Canadian ecosystems.

This initiative aims to strengthen collaborative efforts among federal policy-makers and scientists and the academic community to advance policy-relevant climate change science that supports the work of the Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change (PCF). This joint effort will increase the scientific information available to support government decision-making on climate action. Shared knowledge and collaboration are crucial to tackling climate change within Canada and globally.

For more information about this funding opportunity, please refer to the Call for Proposals.
