Certification/Requirements

Before completing this page, consult the Policies and Guidelines of the Program Guide for Professors concerning the requirements for certain types of research.

Research involving humans: If you select Yes, you must provide your institution's administration with the appropriate certification indicating that research involving humans has been reviewed and has received the required approval.

Research involving human pluripotent stem cells: If you select Yes, or if through peer review the application is found to fall into this category and is recommended for funding, it will be forwarded, with your consent, to the Stem Cell Oversight Committee (SCOC) to ensure compliance with This link will take you to another Web site Human Pluripotent Stem Cell Research: Guidelines for CIHR-Funded Research. The SCOC review is in addition to the normal review by local Research Ethics Boards (REBs). Funding will not be released until approval has been obtained from the SCOC.

Research involving the use of animals: If you select Yes, you must provide your institution's administration with the certification from the animal care committee at the institution that the experimental procedures proposed have been approved and that the care and treatment of animals is in accordance with the principles outlined in the Canadian Council on Animal Care (CCAC) guide.

Research involving hazardous substances: If you select Yes, you must provide your institution's administration with the certification from the biosafety committee at the institution that the laboratory procedures being used comply with the safety precautions necessary for the level of containment required by the research.

Environmental impact: The Environmental Information Form (Appendix A) may be required. For more information, consult NSERC’s Guidelines on Environmental Review and Assessment.

Participants

Since all college funds are institutional grants, faculty and staff involved with the proposal can be listed as participants. List each participant’s name, personal identification number (if known), organization name, as well as the time (in hours per month) each participant will devote to the proposed applied research/activity or the use of equipment.

Only the main participants should be listed on the proposal. Participants need to obtain their organization's approval and must provide a complete College and Community Innovation Program Personal Data Form (Form 103CV), including a signed copy of the Consent to Disclosure of Personal Information Form, to the applicant.

Participants, except those from the applicant's institution, must advise the authorized officer of their organization that NSERC will be seeking their signature through its secure site, agreeing to their participation.

By submitting this form, the applicant certifies that the individuals listed as participants have been informed of the precise uses and disclosures of their personal information by NSERC (see Use and Disclosure of Personal Information Provided to NSERC) and have authorized the release of the information by the applicant.

Supporting Organizations

Enter information about each participant's organization's signing officer (other than the applicant’s organization). For supporting organizations such as a private-sector partner or a government department, enter information about the authorized representative(s).

CV – Applicant and Participants

The CV for the applicant and participants is made up of two sections and a consent form. Part I collects specific information on the person using the NSERC form entitled College Personal Data form. Part II is free form text limited to five pages and is used to list contributions such as the person’s relevant experience and contributions to applied research and innovation. See the instructions for completing the College and Community Innovation Program Personal Data Form (Form 103CV).

When completed, the applicant’s and participants’ signed CV, together with a signed copy of the Consent to Disclosure of Personal Information Form, must be saved into one PDF document and attached to the application.

Collaborators

A collaborator is a member of the research team. Examples of collaborators are: government scientists, academic researchers, company staff members or research scientists. The collaborator will not have access to the grant funds and must be qualified to undertake research independently. Collaborators are expected to contribute to the overall intellectual direction of the applied research project and to bring their own resources to the collaboration.

List each collaborator’s name, personal identification number (if known), organization name, as well as the time (in hours per month) they will each devote to the proposed applied research/activity.

CV – Collaborators

If necessary, curriculum vitae (maximum five pages) from each collaborator can be submitted with the application. The applicant must save all the CVs from the collaborators in one PDF document and attach the PDF document to the application.

Summary of Proposal

The summary is intended to explain the proposal in language that the public can understand.

Using simple terms, briefly describe the nature of the work to be done. Indicate why and to whom the applied research is important, the anticipated outcomes and how Canada will benefit.

This plain language summary will be available to the public if your proposal is funded.

If you wish, you may also provide a summary in the other official language in the text box identified for that purpose.

Activity Schedule

List the activities/steps required to achieve the objectives of the grant.

Indicate the start and end dates for the activities leading to the milestones, as well as the major results expected.

Travel: Explain briefly how each activity relates to the proposed research. Explain how the proposed travel is important to realizing the economic innovation and applied research objectives. This does not include international travel.

Research and Technology Transfer Support Services

Provide details and explain major items with regards to research and technology transfer support services to costs attributable to specific projects/activities to be undertaken. List the expenditure for research planning and promotion, intellectual property protection, market studies, patent applications etc.

Operating and Equipment

The maximum allowable percentage for operating and equipment cost expenditures will not exceed 20% of the total grant awarded to a recipient college.

Give a breakdown of the items requested. Provide details on models, manufacturers, prices and applicable taxes. Justify the need for each item requested. Only small equipment needed to perform the research and not readily accessible by the researcher will be considered.

Since the funding received by colleges is not eligible for the This link will take you to another Web site Research Support Fund, colleges may request funds for overhead and administration costs attributable to this project (but not for general overhead and administration costs of the college as a whole). The maximum allowable percentage for overhead and administrative costs will not exceed 20% of the total grant awarded.

Quotations

Quotations are not required for Engage Grants for colleges. The Quotations page on the On-line System does not need to be completed or submitted.
