The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) have announced funding for Carleton University in the amount of $7,892,018 for 70 researchers to help advance their work on cutting-edge research projects in areas such as climate change and sustainability, ground-breaking technology, health and wellness, and digital equity and inclusiveness.
Under the Discovery Grants program, 41 researchers will receive the significant bulk of the funding over 5 years. Over half of recipients are considered early-career researchers, and the Discovery Launch Supplements program will provide additional funding so they can begin developing their research platforms for successful future funding.
The Research Tools and Instruments program will provide four researchers with almost half a million dollars for the infrastructure they need to support their research projects. Carleton University is proud that this year, the RTI grants results surpass our historical record with this program.
