June 9, 2022
The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) is pleased to announce funding of up to $21.45 million for a total of 13 training initiatives through its Collaborative Research and Training Experience (CREATE) program.
These training initiatives will benefit students and postdoctoral fellows by providing them training and mentoring opportunities in a collaborative setting to develop their professional and technical skills, preparing them for their future careers.
“NSERC’s CREATE program offers a collaborative and multidisciplinary training and mentorship opportunity that helps motivated young researchers develop a range of important professional and research skills. Ultimately, this experience helps research trainees make the leap into meaningful careers in academia, industry, government, and beyond.”
– Alejandro Adem, President, NSERC
