NSERC CREATE Expression of Interest Call - 2023 Competition

This notice is from the archives of The Notice Board. Information contained in this notice was accurate at the time of publication but may no longer be so.

The NSERC Collaborative Research and Training Experience (CREATE) Program supports the training of teams of highly qualified students and postdoctoral fellows from Canada and abroad through the development of innovative training programs that:

  • encourage collaborative and integrative approaches, address significant scientific challenges associated with Canada’s research priorities
  • facilitate the transition of new researchers from trainees to productive employees in the Canadian workforce.

These innovative programs must foster the acquisition and development of important professional skills among students and postdoctoral fellows that complement their qualifications and technical skills and improve their job readiness for careers in industry, government, non-governmental organizations and/or academia.


Duration: Up to six years

Value: Up to $150,000 in the first year and up to $300,000 for up to five subsequent years, for a maximum of $1.65 million over six years.

The CREATE competition is held on an annual basis. Universities are provided with a quota for the number of CREATE LOIs they can submit to NSERC. The CREATE quota for the University of Lethbridge this year is two. The international stream is not counted toward the quota.

University of Lethbridge researchers interested in applying to the 2023 NSERC CREATE competition must submit an Expression of Interest as part of the internal selection process. The deadline for Expressions of Interest is March 6, 2023.
