NSERC has increased the flexibility of its Research Networks
Program by making changes in the competition schedule and the
program requirements. Beginning in 2001, letters of intent may
be submitted at any time. Once a letter of intent is accepted,
applicants will have up to six months to submit a full proposal.
With respect to program guidelines, the requirement that the
researchers involved in the network come from three non-affiliated
organizations has been eliminated so that researchers may be
from separate faculties or departments within the same institution
or affiliated institutions. All other requirements for the program
call Labrador research
A competition will be held to provide seed funding for new research
projects funded through the Office of the Vice-President (Research
and International Relations). Research projects will be carried
out in Labrador, in close collaboration and in cooperation with
Memorial Universitys Labrador Institute. Applications must
be received by the Office of Research no later than Jan. 31.
