A key strategic goal of the Department of National Defence (DND) and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) is to collaborate fully in the development of an innovative, knowledge-based economy. To achieve this goal, DND and NSERC have established a jointly managed and funded DND/NSERC Research Partnership Grant that aims to: capitalize on the complementary R&D capacity existing in the universities and in DND in order to generate new knowledge and support the development of new technical capabilities relevant to the development and application of dual-use technologies in selected areas of interest to both DND and NSERC; build strong two- and three-way linkages and create synergy between researchers in DND and universities and the private sector; achieve the efficient and effective transfer of research results and technology to identified receptors in the public and the private sector; and train and develop highly qualified personnel in priority areas consistent with the future human resource requirements in the public and private sectors.

DND and NSERC will provide funding for university-based research, research training and research-related activities carried out in collaboration with DND and Canadian-based companies. The maximum value of the research grants that will be made available is normally limited to $500,000 per project. Requests exceeding this amount will only be considered under special circumstances and on a case-by-case basis.

Application Details: Research proposals must be submitted on NSERC forms. Applicants are required to meet all NSERC regulations described in its Program Guide for Professors. Proposals can be submitted at any time using Forms 100, 101 and 183A. Full instructions for professors and their industrial sponsors on how to complete the forms and on-line submission are found on NSERC's On-line Services page. DND support to the project must be documented by filling the appropriate section of Form 101, Part I.
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.
