This initiative will fund large-scale, multidisciplinary, collaborative networks of researchers to address specific research objectives by initiating or accelerating the development of truly transformative solutions, and by mobilizing expertise, technologies and research in social sciences, natural sciences and engineering and in areas that broaden the traditional network of agriculture research partners. Applications must come from university teams of at least 3 co-applicants.
Applicants are encouraged to collaborate with knowledge users (such as agronomists, producers, smart farms, etc.), and involve researchers across several universities, colleges and disciplines. To maximize the potential impact, benefits and knowledge mobilization of the research, at least one partner organization is required, however, collaboration with additional partner organizations is encouraged.
Funding to support proposal development is available (deadline is May 8, 2023). For additional details, see: NSERC-SSHRC Sustainable agriculture research initiative – Preparatory Funding
Teams are encourage to reach out early (e.g. no later than mid-August) to request proposal development support
