NSERC to host discussion

NSERC is sponsoring a session, co-hosted by OceansAdvance, to discuss upcoming reviews of NSERC programs. The session takes place Monday, May 28, at 11 a.m. in the Institute for Ocean Technology, NRC Building, on Memorial’s St. John’s Campus.

The session will feature a 60-minute presentation on the following topics:

  • Grant Selection Committees (GSC) Structure Review: The current structure of NSERC’s discipline-based GSCs has been in place for more than 30 years. NSERC has recently undertaken a review of this structure and would like to update the community on the review’s status, as well as gather input on the process so far, and on future directions.

  • International Review of Discovery Grants Program: NSERC is commissioning an International Review to assess the merit of its approach to supporting research in the natural sciences and engineering, and the extent to which its Discovery Grants Program fosters and supports research excellence. NSERC will present the context of this study, as well as gather feedback from the research community on the initial steps of the study.
