Greenfield Research and Innovation Fund - Information Session
12:00 P.M. - 1:00 P.M.
Researchers: Join us for an information session to learn more about the new NSERC Greenfield R&I grants. These grants will build on applied research (AR) and strengthen our regional partnerships to respond to the health, economic and environmental crises brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic and climate change. College researchers will lead these multi-partnered initiatives in collaboration with the private sector, public sector, or not-for-profit organizations based in Canada, while encouraging partnerships with universities and other colleges. In association with regional partners, the Greenfield R&I grants will develop impactful programs that engage underrepresented communities in research and provide enhanced training to students and emerging researchers (ER).
