Alliance Grants, Option 1
Research Admin Offices:
Option 1: requesting $150,000 or greater, annually, from NSERC
The objective of the Alliance Grant is to encourage greater collaboration in Canada’s research and development system by
- Providing support for projects that include both generators and users of research results and knowledge, and
- Accommodating a broader range of partners. Alliance also includes incentives for collaborations with small and medium-sized enterprises and multi-sectoral partnerships, and offers an accelerated means for projects to scale and grow. Key benefits: single point of entry to rapidly develop new partnerships, or facilitate the growth of existing research collaborations; support for projects of different levels of scale and complexity from new, short term, one-on-one collaborations, to larger multi-stakeholder research teams; enhanced flexibility in the types of projects and partners, providing more opportunities for more innovative collaborations; supports research focused on outcomes as well as the training of research talent in a multi-partner environment; streamlined application process resulting in faster decision times, thereby supporting modern and fast-breaking research.
