NSERC CREATE Internal Call for Expressions of Interest (due February 1, 2023)

NSERC's Collaborative Research and Training Experience (CREATE) program supports the training and mentoring of teams of highly qualified students and postdoctoral fellows from Canada and abroad through the development of innovative training programs that:

  • encourage collaborative and integrative approaches, and address significant scientific challenges associated with Canada’s research priorities, and 
  • facilitate the transition of new researchers from trainees to productive employees in the Canadian workforce
Please note that as in the past, it is anticipated that Lakehead University will have a quota of two letters of intent that it can submit to this competition.  If you intend to submit a LOI to this program, you are asked to notify the Office of Research Services (ahacquo1@lakeheadu.ca) by February 1, 2023 of your intention to apply to this opportunity.  If more than two teams indicate that they are submitting an LOI to the CREATE program, an internal competition will need to be held to determine which two LOIs will be submitted to NSERC.
Given the highly competitive nature of the NSERC Create program and the requirement for institutional support, Principal Investigators will need to work closely with assigned research facilitators from the conceptualization of the project proposal to final submission.
Please note that the NSERC CREATE guidelines have not yet been updated or any CREATE webinars scheduled by NSERC.  Once the dates and times of the webinars are known, they will be communicated to faculty members.
