NSERC NOVA Program

The Fonds de recherche du Québec – Nature et technologies (FRQNT) and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) are proud to announce the launch of the first competition of their new NOVA program. 

The main objective of this program is to support research projects in the natural sciences, mathematics and engineering (NSE) fields led by early-career researchers from Quebec and conducted in collaboration with researchers from other Canadian provinces and territories. The NOVA program will contribute to strengthening the competitiveness of these researchers on the international scene, as well as to generating new knowledge or applications likely to have social, environmental, technological, or economic benefits, or an impact on public policy in Quebec and/or Canada as a whole.

Main Features: 

  • Competition year: 2022-2023
  • Annual amount and duration: $75,000 (up to $30,000 from FRQNT and up to $45,000 from NSERC) – up to 3 years;
  • Collaborative research projects must fall within the research areas covered by FRQNT and NSERC;
  • Collaborative research projects are led by a principal investigator in the early stages of their career at a Quebec university;
  • Research teams include at least one co-investigator from a Quebec university or college and at least one co-investigator from another Canadian province or territory;
  • An additional grant of up to $50,000 from the FRQNT may be added to the NOVA grant for the purchase of scientific equipment by Quebec researchers (within the budget envelope).
