The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) is pleased to announce more than $32 million in funding for 20 new training initiatives for the next generation of scientists and engineers through its Collaborative Research and Training Experience (CREATE) program.
These innovative and multidisciplinary training and mentorship programs help teams of highly qualified students and postdoctoral fellows in multiple locations develop their professional and technical skills while preparing them for their future careers in academia, industry, government and beyond.
This year’s multi-institutional teams will support the development of the leaders of tomorrow in various areas with a research focus ranging from autonomous vehicles to permafrost thaw and Northern research. Among the grantees is an initiative in the international stream, which will provide unique experiential learning opportunities from Canadian and German partners in the growing biomaterials, medical devices and therapeutics sector. Three of these programs are receiving close to $5 million of this total investment to prepare diverse research trainees to join the Canadian workforce in the fields of quantum science and technology as part of NSERC’s participation in the National Quantum Strategy, whose first round of recipients were also announced today.
