Slide6:  EXPECTED RESULTS: New knowledge/technology with strong potential to strengthen Canada’s industrial base, generate wealth, create employment and/or Canadian public policy Highly qualified personnel trained in the identified target areas Increased participation of companies and/or government organizations in academic research Transfer of knowledge/technology to Canadian-based organizations that are well positioned to apply the results for economic gain or to government organizations to strengthen public policy Slide7:  REQUIREMENTS: The Strategic Projects Program funds early stage project research in targeted areas. Project must support goal of SPG program & must fall within one of the target areas. Objectives & scope must be well defined; duration may be from one to three years. At least one academic researcher & at least one supporting organization must collaborate in the project. Supporting organization must be actively involved in all stages of the project. In-kind contributions to the direct costs of research are required, but cash is not. Slide8:  Applicants encouraged to collaborate with experts working in fields other than natural sciences & engineering, where appropriate. These experts may be co-applicants if they meet NSERC’s eligibility requirements. Research costs for these collaborations may comprise up to 30% of the project costs & must be identified in the project budget. Applicants are encouraged to incorporate international collaboration into their proposals. Unsuccessful applicants in the Supplemental Competition can reapply in the regular competition. Slide9:  SUPPORTING ORGANIZATIONS: Private sector Canadian-based companies with Canadian operations (R&D or manufacturing) that can apply the research results for economic gain Non-academic public sector Canadian government organizations that can apply the research results to strengthen policies Do not qualify as supporting organizations but can be involved: NGO’s, government research labs, foreign research institutions, venture capitalists, implementation sites, potential customers. Slide10:  SUPPORTING ORGANIZATIONS (continued): A supporting organization must also: Have a demonstrated interest in the project (letters of support, in-kind contributions) Be involved in all stages of the research (Help develop the proposal, interact with researchers and students, provide input to the project) Validate the results of the research Provide guidance concerning the exploitation of the results Slide11:  Documents needed from your Supporting Organization(s): Completed and signed Form 183A Signed letter of support on partner letterhead Company profile TIP #1: Help your partner to write a strong letter by showing them the NSERC letter of support requirements and sample letter included in your handout. TIP #2: Letter must be on the organization's letterhead and signed by a senior representative of the organization. TIP #3: Obtain signed originals of these documents well in advance of the internal deadline. They must be included when you bring your application to UTRS. Slide12:  Documents needed from your Supporting Organization (continued): For electronic submission Form 183A and letter of support can now be linked to the application by either the applicant or the supporting organization.

Remaining 30% to be allocated incrementally to the 3 areas highlighted in the government’s science & technology strategy – IT, environment & energy. Priority given to applications addressing the research topics in each target area. Exceptional opportunities outside the research topics but within the target area (no more than 20% of the budget) Research outside the 7 priority target areas will not be funded. Slide14:  COMPETITION TIMETABLE: Applications due April 15 Pre-selection process, if number of applications in a given target area is very high Summer - External peer review September - Panel evaluation October - Results announced Slide15:  ELIGIBILITYOF APPLICANT & CO-APPLICANTS FOR STRATEGIC PROJECTS: Must hold, or have a firm offer of, an academic appointment at an eligible Canadian university, for: A tenured, tenure-track or life-time professor emeritus position; or A term position of no less than three years Slide16:  ELIGIBILITY (continued) Adjunct professors: whose primary place of employment is outside academia (e.g., government or industry) are eligible  as co-applicants only. NOTE: NSERC will normally award funds to adjunct professors working outside academia only for the direct support of students (salaries or stipends, and student travel costs); all other costs must be covered through other sources of funding. Slide17:  NEW: Form 100, Page 1 revised re your appointment status Slide18:  COLLABORATOR: Government scientist, company staff member, research scientist from another country Not eligible to hold NSERC grants Qualified to undertake research independently Expected to contribute to the overall intellectual direction of the research project Expected to bring their own resources Slide19:  Applicable Overhead Rates on Partner Cash - Grant overhead rate = 20% of direct costs - Contract rate overhead = 40% of direct costs How to Calculate Overhead: A) Overhead is normally calculated as a percentage of the total direct costs of the partner budget. Add up all your budget items and multiply the total by the appropriate overhead rate Example: Your total proposed budget: $9000 x 0.20 = $1800 overhead Total contribution from partner = $9000 + $1800 = $10,800 B) If your partner has proposed a maximum budget (e.g. $10,000): Example: $10,000/1.20 = $8333 (the direct cost amount) $10,000 - $8333 = $1667 (the overhead amount) NOTE: only the direct cost amount should be entered in Row One of Form 101, Page 6. The overhead amount should be entered in the last row.
