The Advisory Committee on University-Industry Grants

The Advisory Committee on University‑Industry Grants (ACUIG) is multidisciplinary, and has broad experience in University-Industry interactions. The appointment of members conforms to Council standards with respect to stature and discipline representation, gender, sector, regional and linguistic considerations. Members are appointed for three-year terms.

The ACUIG is chaired by NSERC staff, and meets for one day four times a year in March, June, September and December.

The ACUIG Meetings for 2019 are as follows:

  • March 20
  • June 12
  • September 11
  • December 11

The proposals considered by the ACUIG are presented by the Manager responsible for the case who, following the meeting, conveys the recommendations to senior NSERC management for approval. NSERC makes the final decisions on funding.
