NSERC - Plastic Science for a Cleaner Future

NSERC is pleased to announce a jointly funded initiative with Environment and Climate Change Canada to support research that will increase scientific knowledge to achieve Canada’s zero plastic waste targets and to inform the advancement of policy and regulatory measures.

This call focuses on research to detect and characterize plastics in the environment, and exposure and effects of plastics on wildlife and human health. The funding will support a series of multidisciplinary, collaborative projects in an effort to increase research capacity, as well as collaboration, to help close the gaps in our understanding of plastic pollution and its impacts. The aim is to generate new knowledge to support policy and decision-making related to plastic pollution, as well as to the objectives of the Canada-wide strategy on zero plastic waste.
