New funding grants available for academic-industry collaborations

A new federal-provincial partnership will fund research undertaken by Memorial and industrial partners aimed at supporting regional priorities. 

The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) and the Research & Development Corporation of Newfoundland and Labrador (RDC) are partnering to fund innovative research and development projects.

The collaborative initiative supports priority sectors to capitalize on the province’s competitive advantages.

Applicants must demonstrate project alignment with industry needs or development opportunities, along with significant potential for economic impact in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Direct project costs will be shared by the industrial partner(s), RDC and NSERC. Projects may range from one year to five years in duration.

For more information on the RDC-NSERC CRD program, please consult the RDC website and/or contact the NSERC Atlantic Office.
