NSERC Information Session
CC, Room 701A, 1245h – 1345h

The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) had commissioned an International Review to assess the merit of its approach to supporting research in the natural sciences and engineering, and the extent to which its Discovery Grants Program fostered and supported research excellence. NSERC also undertook a review of the structure of the discipline-based Grant Selection Committees (GSCs). The GSC Structure Review Committee recommended that NSERC adopt a conference model for the review of applications to allow a much more flexible and dynamic approach to grant review. The presentation will focus on the changes that were implemented in the 2009 Discovery Grants competition and those that will be implemented for the 2010 competition.
