Competition launched to fund new NCE networks
The NCE Secretariat has launched a competition to fund new networks through the Networks of Centres of Excellence (NCE) program. The program invests in Canadian research and entrepreneurial talent to translate and apply knowledge, generating economic and social benefits for Canadians. Networks play an important role in mobilizing some of the best academic research talent found in Canada, and in engaging Canadian and international partners in the private, public, and non-profit sectors. Together, they expand the global knowledge frontier to develop and implement multifaceted solutions to complex Canadian issues, which increases the impact of research and research training on Canada.
The NCE program goal, objectives, and expected results and outcomes are described in more detail in the NCE Program Guide.
A Letter of Intent (LOI), the first step in the competition process, must be submitted via the NCE’s secure submission site by August 1, 2013.
