NSERC has announced the 2017/18 Collaborative Research and Training Experience (CREATE) competition, with two notable changes from previous years:
- Researchers are now restricted to participating in only 1 active CREATE initiative.
- All universities, regardless of size, are now allowed to support 5 Letters of Intent (LOIs).
The deadline to submit an LOI for the internal competition to select UBC’s quota of 5 is Wednesday, March 15, 2017, by 4 p.m., with electronic submissions emailed to Mika Johnson.
Competition details and updated documents reflecting the above changes can be found on the SPARC CREATE webpage. SPARC also recently hosted a CREATE Information Session featuring a panel discussion with funded UBC applicants. Slides and audio recordings of this session and panel discussion are now available on this same SPARC CREATE webpage.
