Update – Research Tools and Instruments (RTI) program

Further to a consultation with the research community about the Research Tools and Instruments (RTI) program, NSERC is returning to the processes that were in place before the establishment of university quotas (2014 to 2017). The university quotas will be removed and the 2018 RTI competition will be open to all eligible Canadian university researchers. Researchers will be able to participate in one application per competition, either as an applicant or a co-applicant, but not both.

The RTI program description and instructions will be updated accordingly and will be available at the beginning of August. The application for the RTI Program will be available in the NSERC Research Portal at the same time.  The deadline date for submitting an RTI application is October 25, 2017 at 8 p.m. (ET).

Due to the change in NSERC policy, there will be no internal adjudication process this year.

Further updates (available at the beginning of August), will be circulated via the CORIS Newsletter, once received.
