This Week's Highlights

NSERC Engage Grant

University or college researchers can apply to launch a new research collaboration with an industrial partner through a short-term research and development (R&D) project that applies their expertise to address a company challenge. Partnering companies gain by having the expertise of the academics focused on their R&D issues and by discovering what the researchers and the students working with them have to offer. The company and the researcher must not have previously worked together.

Program Description:

  • Up to $25,000 for up to six months
  • Any intellectual property arising from the project will belong to the company.
  • No cash required, In-kind only. The company must collaborate on the project and be able to exploit the research results.
  • Must be a Canadian-based, incorporated for-profit company engaged in R&D, with appropriate research and /or manufacturing facilities, sound finances and the ability to apply results. The company must also have at least two full-time employees and must have been in operations for a minimum of two years.

Eligibility of the researcher:
The applicant must be an NSERC-eligible researcher and must have been granted an individual or small team, peer-reviewed grant from NSERC within the past six years. Applicants who have received a rating of “Strong” or higher for the criterion “Excellence of the Researcher” in their most recent Discovery Grant competition within the past six years are considered to have met the requirement for peer-reviewed research support. Engage Grants with colleges are also possible.
