The recently-launched NSERC Alliance grants encourage university researchers (faculty members) to collaborate with partner organizations, which can be from the private, public or not-for-profit sectors. These grants support research projects led by collaborative teams that will generate new knowledge and accelerate the application of research results to create benefits for Canada.
On Wednesday, November 20th, Sarah O’Neill (Research & Innovation Development Officer) from NSERC will be visiting Lakehead University to deliver an information session on the new Alliance grants program (both Options 1 and 2).
The NSERC Alliance Information Session will be held from 9am - 11am in ATAC 5035. For faculty members wishing to participate from the Orillia campus, this workshop can be attended by Zoom in room OA2005.
