NSERC Research Tools and Instruments Application Live Webinar

NSERC will be hosting a live webinar on how to complete a RTI application on October 1, 2020 at 10am PST in English and a French session on September 29, 2020 at 10am PST. For all those interested please see details below on how to attend this webinar: 

Due to COVID-19, NSERC is replacing live webinars with pre-recorded videos followed by live Q&A sessions. This series is meant to assist the research community on how to complete an application using the Research Portal and the NSERC Canadian Common CV (CCV). You will find below the pre-recorded videos as well as the dates for these upcoming live Q&A sessions. New Q&A session dates will be added as they become available on our website.

We ask that you please view the pre-recorded videos prior to attending a live Q&A session, as the material presented in the videos will not be repeated.


In order to prepare, we invite you to familiarize yourself with the following documents:

Pre-registration is not required to attend the live Q&A sessions


Considering the high attendance to our webinars, NSERC staff may not have time to respond to all individual questions during the session. Any additional questions should be directed to our support team at NSERC Discovery.
