NSERC Community Engagement Visits


NSERC has begun a series of community engagement visits to provide university researchers, students and other stakeholders an opportunity to learn more about some recent program and policy developments. These visits will also serve as a platform for NSERC and the community to engage in discussions on programs and policies and seek more information from some of NSERC’s grants and scholarships experts with opportunities for questions from participants. Some of the topics that will be discussed include:

·         Common CV & new Research Portal
·         Harmonization of the Canada Graduate Scholarships
·         Five-year Evaluation of the Discovery Grants Program
·         Changes to the Post Doctorate Fellowships Timelines
·         Allocation of Discovery Grants Budget Among Evaluation Groups
