Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC)
As you may know, the deadline for the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada’s (NSERC) Collaborative Research and Development (CRD) grants and Engage grants programs has recently passed. Over the last six months NSERC has received an unprecedented number of applications, compared to previous years.
Due to the record number of applications received, NSERC will not be able to process applications in the usual timelines. This large number of applications may impact NSERC’s ability to fund the same number of projects as in the past. NSERC will continue to diligently assess the projects and fund excellence.
Your understanding and patience is greatly appreciated. NSERC will keep you informed as they make progress in assessing applications.
