ProgramSubatomic Physics Major Resources Support Program
For More Information
The objective of the Subatomic Physics MRS Program is to facilitate the effective access by Canadian academic researchers, working in the field of subatomic physics, to major and unique national or international (based in Canada) experimental or thematic research resources by financially assisting these resources to remain in a state of readiness for researchers to use. SAP-MRS grants are not intended to support resources that are standard in a discipline or commonly available in Canadian universities. SAP-MRS grants cover their operating and maintenance costs. Supported resources are those that cannot fully cover such costs by using other research grants or by user fees, or those where user fees cannot be leveraged.
Please refer to NSERC’s overall eligibility criteria for more information. Applicants that have submitted an NOI on or before August 3, 2015, 8:00 pm are eligible to apply. Faculty must hold a minimum three-year appointment (full-time, contract or adjunct) in an academic position with a firm offer in writing at the time of application.
$1,000,000 per year. For Any application requesting an average (over the requested duration) of $1,000,000 per year or more, the Subatomic Physics Evaluation Group Section may also receive input from an expert ad hoc committee that would perform an on –site evaluation and review of the resource.
Up to 3 years
If College-level review is required, your College will communicate its earlier internal deadlines.
