NSERC has announced changes for the upcoming Collaborative Research and Training Experience (CREATE) Program competition. These changes are as follows:
All universities now have a quota of 5 LOIs that can be submitted.
Researchers are now only eligible to be involved in one active grant and cannot apply while participating in an active grant (as applicant or co-applicant). Therefore, if they currently receive CREATE funding, they cannot be part of a new LOI until the fiscal year following the end of the award. For those currently involved in two CREATE grants, both must be ended before reapplying.
