Program Description

NSERC Alliance grants encourage university researchers to collaborate with partner organizations, which can be from the private, public or not-for-profit sectors. These grants support research projects led by strong, complementary, collaborative teams that will generate new knowledge and accelerate the application of research results to create benefits for Canada. Depending on partner organization size and nature of your project, there are two available funding envelopes and cost-sharing options, Option 1 and Option 2. Projects can be 1-5 years in length, and can request between $20,000 and $1M from NSERC annually. Applications can be submitted anytime. Note that all applications with private sector partners must include a validated National Security Risk Assessment form, to be included when submitting an RPIF. For more information, see https://uilo.ubc.ca/researchers/new-risk-assessment-requirements-nserc-alliance-applications. Following validation, a minimum of two (2) business days are required to obtain required institutional signatures. For large grants (over 500k), please contact ORS well ahead of submission.
