The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) and the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Nature et technologies (FRQNT) have jointly organized a special edition of the Science, Action! video contest.

The Science, Action! video contest offers graduate students a chance to win cash prizes for their video about NSERC or FRQNT-funded research. Working with a professor who holds or has held an NSERC or FRQNT grant, graduate students are challenged to film or animate short, creative videos that tell a simple story about fascinating science. The video must show the benefits of research in the natural sciences and engineering fields and make the connection between basic sciences and the Sustainable Development Goals.

This special edition of our popular video contest complements the celebrations of the International Year of Basic Sciences for Sustainable Development 2022.

Contestants must submit their video entries between January 16, 2023, and February 10, 2023. Visit our website for information on contest rules and more.
