Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC)
Program details and timeline are not yet confirmed. This information will be updated when the program launches.
This prize recognizes outstanding Canadian teams of researchers from different disciplines who have combined their expertise to produce achievements of outstanding international significance in the natural sciences and engineering in the last six years.
Nominators must be Canadian Citizens or permanent residents of Canada. Self Nominations will not be accepted.
Research teams nominated must have at least two members who are independent researchers, one of whom must hold an NSERC research grant. The team can be part of an international effort, but the majority of the team must be employed at a Canadian University or public or private organization. Contributions must be primarily in the natural sciences and engineering, and of an interdisciplinary and collaborative nature.
A team may be nominated for the NSERC Brockhouse Prize and other major NSERC prizes in the same year, but can receive only one such prize in a given year.
Up to $250,000.00
If College-level review is required, your College will communicate its earlier internal deadlines.
If your nomination will be submitted by a nominator other than the VPR, please submit directly to the sponsor by the external deadline. Please also submit a copy of the full nomination and OR-5 to email@example.com
