NSERCs Inter-American materials collaboration
NSERC and its counterpart agencies in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia,
Mexico and the US have created a pilot initiative to foster collaborative
activities in materials research. The two proposal categories are: Category
A Inter-American Materials Research Projects and Category B
Inter-American Planning Grants for International Activities in Materials
Research. Category A aims to support new, special collaborative projects
in materials research among groups of investigators or centres from at
least two of the seven participating countries that enhance cooperation
and interaction among research centres and organizations. A letter of
intent outlining the proposed project must be submitted to NSERC summarizing
the collaborative opportunity with an emphasis of what makes it a special
project; some background on the development of the proposed initiative;
a short description of the project; and the need for, and benefits of
the proposed international collaboration. Letters of intent are due by
July 1, 2002. Full proposals are to be received by NSERC no later than
Oct. 1, 2002. Category B aims to establish and design new collaborative
research projects and programs in materials research among groups of investigators
or centres from at least two of the seven participating countries. Funding
under this category can be used to cover the costs associated with organizing
workshops or symposia, and travel for meetings to establish the collaborative
framework of the project. These proposals may be submitted at any time.
A letter of intent is not required for proposals in this category. For
further information, please contact Kate Wilson at 613-995-7752 or by
