Alliance Consortia Quantum grants will support the development of large-scale domestic research collaborations in quantum science and technology by enhancing synergy across Canada’s regional quantum research and innovation hubs, with the additional aim to connect with industrial applications and government needs. These grants will enable collaborations between university researchers and partner organizations from the private, public or not-for-profit sectors. This funding opportunity will be delivered through calls for proposals, of which Supporting coordinated quantum research and innovation across Canada is the first.
Your research team must include eligible academic researchers from universities located in two or more of Canada’s regional quantum research and innovation hubs. The team may also involve eligible academic researchers from universities outside these hubs.
The regional quantum research and innovation hubs are the following geographic areas:
- Greater Vancouver area, British Columbia
- Calgary-Edmonton corridor, Alberta
- Waterloo-Toronto-Ottawa corridor, Ontario
- Montreal-Sherbrooke-Quebec City corridor, Quebec
While NSERC will cover 100% of the project’s eligible costs, you must have at least one partner organization (in the private, public or not-for-profit sector) whose cash contributions would be recognized for cost sharing, had there been any required (see Alliance grants: Role of partner organizations). You may include other partner organizations that play an important role in your research project, whether or not their cash contributions would be recognized for cost sharing, had there been any required. At least one partner organization must have the ability to exploit the project’s research results.
Deadline DateOctober 21, 2022.
