Additional information

The RTI program fosters and enhances the discovery, innovation and training capability of university researchers in the natural sciences and engineering by supporting the purchase of research equipment and installations. Grants are one-year awards of up to $150,000 to support the purchase or development of research equipment with a total net cost between $7,001 and $250,000.

Just a reminder that NSERC has recently updated the Research Tools and Instruments (RTI) program, removing the university quotas and opening the competition to all eligible Canadian researchers. Researchers will be able to participate on one application per competition, either as an applicant or a co-applicant, but not both.

October 25 – external deadline

By this date, you will need to press submit on the application in the portal. The application will come to us to complete electronic approval of your application and push it forward to the funding agency.
