NSERC Discovery Grant Live Q&A 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:

We would greatly appreciate if you could extend this invitation to all applicants from your university who would be interested in attending these webinars.

Pre-registration is not required to attend the live Q&A sessions. The session will be open 15 minutes in advance for you to review existing questions and submit your questions in advance.

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.
