NSERC Grant Development Workshops 2022

Discovery Grant Roundtables with NSERC Evaluators

Date (Evaluation groups), time:

July 4th, 2022 (1504-1506), 10am to noon - Register

July 4th, 2022 (1502), 1pm to 3pm - Register

July 14th, 2022 (1509-1512), 10am to noon - Register

Session description:

If you are applying for an NSERC Discovery Grant, consider attending one of the above Roundtable discussions with NSERC Evaluators hosted by the Research Partner Network. The NSERC Evaluators are UofA researchers who are active members of an NSERC Discovery Grant Evaluation Group and have experienced the Discovery Grant review process first hand. During the sessions, these researchers will share their knowledge and experience with you on:

-How the NSERC Discovery Grant evaluation process works
-What constitutes a successful application
-What are the best practices that can potentially increase your ranking
-What are the pitfalls to avoid in order to write a successful Discovery Grant

Even if the session for your evaluation group does not fit with your schedule, consider registering for one of the other sessions. Much of the NSERC Discovery Grant peer review process is consistent across evaluation groups and you will still gain valuable insight by attending.


 Alliance Grant Drop-In Sessions

Workshop Date:

July 21st, 2022 - Register here

Time: 11:00am-noon

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.  

If you have specific questions about the Alliance program in the meantime, please contact your Research Facilitator.


CREATE Grant Info Session 

The Collaborative Research and Training Experience (CREATE) program supports the training and mentoring of teams of highly qualified students and postdoctoral fellows from Canada and abroad through the development of innovative training programs that

  • encourage collaborative and integrative approaches, and address significant scientific challenges associated with Canada’s research priorities
  • facilitate the transition of new researchers from trainees to productive employees in the Canadian workforce

These innovative programs must foster the acquisition and development of important professional skills among students and postdoctoral fellows that complement their qualifications and technical skills, and improve their job readiness for careers in industry, government, non-governmental organizations and/or academia.

The Research Relationships team is hosting two NSERC CREATE info session on the dates below:

March 8th, 2022 noon to 1pm - Register here

March 9th, 2022 12:30pm to 1:30pm - Register here
