Update to Alliance Option 2 Cost-Sharing Ratio

As of February 18, 2022, Alliance Option 2 has been simplified to one single cost sharing ratio of 100% from NSERC for proposals involving partners from any sector (private, public or not-for-profit). This means that the requirement for partner organizations to commit 10% of the project’s cash budget, when partners from the private sector are involved, has been removed. This would not preclude additional cash investments being made by partners from any sector to increase the scope of the project where applicable.
