NSERC and NRC have established a joint Fuel Cell Research Network
Program. A network coordination office will be managed out of
NRCs Innovation Centre in Vancouver. NSERC will allocate
funding for the creation of five industrial research chairs (deadline
for applications is Jan. 29). Funding for fuel cell related research
will also be available under the existing NRC/NSERC Research
Partnership Program (applications may be submitted at any time).
