Opportunity

Alliance grants encourage university researchers to collaborate with partner organizations, which can be from the private, public or not-for-profit sectors. These grants support research projects led by strong, complementary, collaborative teams that will generate new knowledge and accelerate the application of research results to create benefits for Canada.

We are pleased to announce that NSERC is now accepting applications to the Alliance grants program, beginning with applications that are requesting $150,000 or more annually from NSERC in Option 1.

The Alliance grants program will be phased in gradually. Option 1, for applications requesting less than $150,000 annually from NSERC, as well as Option 2, will be opened at a later date.

Carleton recently hosted John Jackson and Patrick St. Pierre from NSERC to provide an overview of the Alliance program. A copy of their slides can be found here:

Eligibility

If you are a Canadian university researcher who is eligible to receive NSERC funds, you can apply on your own or as a team with co-applicants who are also eligible academic researchers. You must have at least one partner organization (in the private, public or not-for-profit sector) whose cash contributions will be recognized for cost-sharing (see Alliance grants: Role of partner organizations) but you may include other partner organizations who play an important role in your research project whether or not their cash contributions are recognized for cost sharing.
