Alliance Missions grants

Making connections

Private-sector, public-sector and not-for-profit organizations

Are you from a Canadian private-sector, public-sector or not-for-profit organization addressing a challenge that could help energize Canada’s economy? Could you benefit from scientific, technical or research expertise in the natural sciences and/or engineering? If so, submit your challenge to NSERC by completing this survey. NSERC will communicate these challenges publicly to Canada’s post-secondary institutions by posting them on our website and connecting you with interested university researchers.

To complete the survey, your organization must be recognized for cost- sharing with NSERC through the Alliance grants program.

By making these connections, NSERC aims to increase collaboration between organizations and researchers. Together, collaborating teams can apply for NSERC Alliance Missions grants.


If you are a researcher from a Canadian university holding an active peer-reviewed grant from NSERC, and you are interested in helping an organization address a research challenge related to Canada’s economic prosperity, please consult the list of challenges.
