To provide support for researchers in Canada to establish and grow international research collaborations that will strengthen research excellence in Canada and abroad, and further develop Canadian research strengths and leadership in quantum science and technology. 

Proposals must focus on any of the following areas of quantum technologies: 

  • quantum algorithms/encryption 
  • quantum communications 
  • quantum computing 
  • quantum materials 
  • quantum sensing 

Collaborations that synergistically couple any of these quantum technology thrusts to other research topics in the natural sciences and engineering would be accepted. 

  • Limited to one application within a 12-month period as either applicant or co-applicant.
  • You and any Canadian co-applicants must hold, as primary applicant, an active NSERC peer-reviewed grant at the time of application.

How to Apply

York University researchers are reminded that all applications for external research funding, including Letters of Intent, must be reviewed and approved by the Office of Research Services before they are submitted to the granting agency.  For internal approval, the application must be accompanied by a completed ORS Checklist, which requires the Dean’s signature.  Please send the complete application, with the finalized budget and a completed ORS checklist to, five days prior to agency deadline.
