NSERC held a webinar on how to apply to this call on February 1. (See the slides).

On the heels of a very successful Gender Summit in Montréal last November, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) is pleased to participate in the GENDER-NET Plus Joint Call for proposals.

The Joint Call invites interdisciplinary applications exploring sex and gender effects and dimensions in research topics relating to one or more of the following United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs):

  • SDG 3 - Good health and well-being
  • SDG 9 - Infrastructure, Industrialization and Innovation
  • SDG 13 - Climate Action

NSERC will provide direct funding to eligible researchers to participate in natural sciences and engineering research falling under SDG9 and SDG13 topics only. The maximum amount available per project is $100,000 annually for two or three years.

For more information on how to apply, consult our program description and the GENDER-NET Plus website.
