The Office of Research Services (ORS) would like to remind researchers of the upcoming deadline for the NSERC RTI Grants Program, Category 1 (October 25). Please find below important information regarding submission of your application.
- To foster and enhance the discovery, innovation and training capability of university researchers in the natural sciences and engineering by supporting the purchase of research equipment
NSERC will only accept requests:
- For tools and instruments that form a comprehensive system intended to support NSERC funded research in the natural sciences and engineering (bundling of unrelated tools and instruments, will not be accepted).
- For the purchase of new equipment, or for the fabrication of equipment, or for the repair or upgrade of equipment, or for the fabrication of equipment that is not readily available off the shelf.
- For equipment that is purchased after the application deadline.
Note: Researchers can submit one RTI application per competition, either as an applicant or a co-applicant, but not as both. This requirement does not apply to Subatomic Physics applicants as their grant applications are reviewed and supported through a different multi-program envelope.
