Alliance Grant Drop-In Sessions

The Research Relationships team is hosting monthly NSERC Alliance Grant drop-in sessions for researchers who are either thinking about applying for, or are currently in the process of applying for an Alliance Grant.  The sessions are not designed to be a formal presentation on the Alliance Grant program, but rather as an opportunity for researchers to leverage the expertise of the Research Relationships team with the Alliance Grant program to discuss the program and get answers to your questions.  

During the session, we will discuss aspects of the Alliance Grant program that the researchers want to hear about from program guidelines, institutional requirements, budgetary considerations, EDI, partners and funding ratio, partner(s) eligibility, project setup and any other discussion topics you would like to hear about.

At the end of the session, you should have a better understanding of the Alliance Grant program and how it pertains to your current partnerships, or your plans for leveraging partner funding in the future.

You can register for the next session by clicking on the link below.  The registration form allows you to submit your questions ahead of the session.  The next session is:

Sessions will resume in September.
