Description:

Connect Grants provide targeted financial support to encourage post-secondary researchers at universities and/or colleges to connect with industry and other knowledge end-user communities in order to form new partnerships. Connect Grant recipients can be individuals at either an NSERC-eligible institution or a not-for-profit, non-government organization (including an industry association).

Level 1 Connect Grants provide up to $5,000 for travel, accommodation and meeting costs for NSERC-eligible academic researchers at universities or colleges to undertake outreach aimed at forming new partnerships in natural sciences or engineering research with Canadian companies. As the objective is a new partnership, there must be no existing or past relationship between, on the one hand, the applicant or any researcher listed on the application and, on the other hand, the company or companies targeted.

Application Details: Applicants are strongly encouraged to submit applications at least 12 weeks in advance of the proposed travel, events or workshops in order to ensure that they have sufficient time to finalize any activity and issue invitations following NSERC's decision.
NOTE: All Letters of Intent and Full Applications must be processed through Research Development & Services for institutional approval. Requests for Institutional approvals should be received no less than 3 days prior to the posted Sponsor deadline. A ROLA Proposal (bearing applicant, Chair and Dean electronic approvals) is required for each submission.
