NEW - NSERC Engage Plus Grants - Until Feb. 3, 2014
New option following an NSERC Engage Grant
The NEW NSERC Engage follow-on opportunity - Engage Plus Grants will support a completed Engage project for an additional six months of activity so that the partners can build on progress in the Engage Grant and/or continue the project while seeking longer term funding support.
Key highlights include:
NSERC and the industrial partner will both contribute cash towards the direct costs of the project. NSERC will match the cash contribution of the industry partner up to a maximum of $12,500. Any portion of the industry partner’s cash contribution that the university requests as overhead will not be matched by NSERC.
The project must involve the same university researcher and the same industrial partner.
Intellectual property developed during an Engage Plus Grant belongs to the industry partner.
The application process follows the same, simple steps as in an Engage Grant.
Decisions will be communicated by NSERC within four to six weeks.
An Engage Grant project can only be awarded one Engage Plus Grant.
NSERC will accept applications for an Engage Plus Grant that builds on any completed Engage Grant project until February 3, 2014. Afterwards, Engage Plus Grants will only be accepted within the final month of the Engage Grant, or within the six month period following the end of the grant.

NSERC & SSHRC Encourages Researchers to Start CCV
The Canadian Common CV (CCV) will gradually be incorporated into the application process for NSERC and SSHRC opportunities over the coming years. It is now required for:
• NSERC Discovery NOI & application
• NSERC Subatomic Physics Grant
• SSHRC Insight Development
• Most CIHR funding opportunities
Transition to the CCV is a major endeavour and may take 1 or 2 full days. NSERC and SSHRC encourage everyone using the CCV to start filling it out as early as possible.
