We will connect you with the organization that submitted the challenge.

Please note that we will no longer be accepting submissions of interest from researchers after December 1, 2021.

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

Are you from a Canadian private-sector, public-sector or not-for-profit organization that is addressing a challenge that could help energize Canada’s economy? Could you benefit from scientific, technical or research expertise in natural sciences and/or engineering? If so, submit your challenge to NSERC by completing this survey.

Please note that due to competition timelines, we will no longer be accepting submissions of new Alliance Missions challenges after 12 p.m. (ET) on November 19, 2021.

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.

Note: If you wish to have your challenge removed from this page, please email NSERC at
