Ottawa, ON – The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) has announced the results of its Strategic Project Grants competition, with $55 million in funding being provided to 120 research teams.
“These Strategic Project Grants show that the NSERC community has risen to the challenge and is putting the federal science and technology strategy to work,” said Suzanne Fortier, NSERC President. “We have received a high number of quality submissions, and the peer review committees evaluating them are impressed with the excellence of the research teams, the importance and potential impact of the proposed research, and the strong support from partners.”
The grants support early-stage project research led by at least one researcher and a supporting organization. The goal of the program is to increase research and training in areas that could strongly influence Canada’s economy, society or environment in the next ten years.
