National Security Guidelines for Research Partnerships: updates to Alliance program literature

Following the Government of Canada’s release of the National Security Guidelines for Research Partnerships on July 12, 2021, the Alliance program literature has been updated to reflect the new requirements for all Alliance grant applications involving one or more partner organizations from the private sector. Key changes are summarized below, but we strongly encourage you to review the updated literature before submitting an application.

Please also note that for any Alliance application currently in the online system and not yet submitted to NSERC by the university, the applicant must invite (or re-invite, if previously done) the contact person at each of their partner organizations in order for them to complete the partner organization form (if not previously done), and to submit the information about the organization while agreeing to the new terms and conditions of applying for partner organizations.
