To reinforce, coordinate and scale up Canada’s domestic research capabilities in quantum science and technology through partnerships between university researchers and organizations from the private, public or not-for-profit sectors.
Proposals may address any challenges in quantum science, but its thrust must support the development of 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.
- Canadian university researcher who is eligible to receive NSERC funds.
- Can apply individually or as a team with co-applicants who are also eligible academic researchers.
How to Apply
Applications requesting more than $750,000 total funding from NSERC are supported by the Strategic and Institutional Research Initiatives (SIRI) unit. Interested applicants should contact Maheen Hasan, SIRI Specialist (firstname.lastname@example.org) as soon as possible for details around the development and submission process.
