Description: NSERC is Canada’s largest federal agency that supports research in the natural sciences and engineering, with an annual budget of $1.2 Billion. NSERC’s Research Partnership grants are specifically designed to bring companies and academic researchers together to solve the company’s technical challenges and create long term collaborations. The main mechanism to initiate those collaborations is NSERC’s Engage Grant, which has supported over 7,500 projects worth approximately $185 Million. Also, the NSERC Experience Grant helps support the cost of undergraduate interns working at companies. Pam has a Master’s degree from UBC and a PhD from the University of Saskatchewan. She’s worked in academia, industry, and government and understands the unique aspects of each of those sectors.
Audiences: in addition to businesses and academic researchers in the field of invasive species we encourage government representatives and students to also join the webinar to learn how they can participate.
Host Bio: Pam has been with the NSERC Pacific regional office in Vancouver since it opened in 2006. Her primary role at NSERC is to improve stakeholder awareness of NSERC’s Research Partnerships programs and facilitate research collaborations between companies and academics.
