The NSERC-FRQNT Team Research supplements are offered jointly by NSERC and the Fonds de Recherche du Québec - Nature et Technologies (FRQNT). The purpose of these supplements is to provide additional resources to early-career researchers in Quebec who currently hold an FRQNT Team research project grant, as well as to other researchers in Quebec who currently hold said grant and have included early-career researchers on their teams.
The supplements will enable such research teams to integrate Canadian researchers from outside of Quebec who have complementary expertise, so as to expand the scope and benefits of their initial projects.
These supplements are available only to research teams:
Applications may be submitted only by early-career researchers who currently hold an FRQNT Team research project grant or by other holders of said grant whose teams include one or more early-career researchers.
The NSERC supplements are designed for established research teams who wish to enhance their research projects by adding one or multiple members to their team, who are researchers from a Canadian university outside of Quebec. Applicants need not limit themselves to the activities described in the original application and are strongly encouraged to add a complementary research component that will expand the expected benefits of the FRQNT team research project.
Fill out the proposal template, following the instructions for completing an application for an NSERC Alliance grant. Using NSERC's online system, submit your completed application and accompanying documents, including a personal data form with CCV attachment for the applicant and one for each of the co-applicants.
Applications will be evaluated by NSERC file managers, according to the following established evaluation criteria for Alliance grants.Relevance and outcomes
Quality of the proposal
Early-career researchers who currently hold an FRQNT Team research project grant, and other researchers who currently hold said grant and have included one or more early-career researchers in their teams, may be awarded a supplement up to a maximum of $30,000. Supplements will be paid within one month to the institution responsible for administering the team’s FRQNT Team research project grant. Supplement funds may be used at any point during the term of their FRQNT Team research project grant.
The supplement holder must report regularly on the use of the funding, the activities conducted within the funded project and the outcomes of the part of the project funded by the NSERC supplement. The reporting requirements will be detailed in the award letter. The final report must be submitted within three months of the end of the project. Please consult the Post-award page of the Alliance grants section of the NSERC website.
