Updates to NSERC CREATE Program

NSERC has announced changes for the upcoming Collaborative Research and Training Experience (CREATE) Program competition.  These changes are as follows:

  1. All universities now have a quota of 5 LOIs that can be submitted.
  2. 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.

UPEI's internal process for submission of CREATE LOIs is attached.
