The Natural Science and Engineering Council of Canada (NSERC) has awarded U of T researchers a total of $7.3 million through its Strategic Network Grants (SNG) and Strategic Project Grants (SPG) programs, including a $262,000 grant for research by U of T Mississauga Professor Ulrich Krull.
The SNG program is designed to increase research and training in targeted areas that could enhance Canada’s economy, society and environment within the next decade. This funding is focused on large-scale, multidisciplinary research projects in targeted research areas that require a network approach and involve collaboration between academic and Canadian-based organizations.
The SPG program helps to address Canada’s science and technology priorities. The primary goal of these grants is to increase research and training in targeted areas that, like the SNG program, could enhance Canada’s economy, society and/or environment in the next 10 years.
