NSERC Alliance Missions: Anthropogenic greenhouse gas research

Posted by Jaq-Lin Larder on August 2, 2022 in Research Funding

NSERC is pleased to officially launch Alliance Missions: Anthropogenic greenhouse gas research, a special call aimed to address issues related to climate change. This call will support the goals of the 2022 Federal Budget that prioritizes Canada’s ongoing efforts to fight climate change and protect the environment by taking bold and immediate action to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, while strengthening the Canadian economy with sustainable jobs and clean industrial growth.

These grants will provide support ranging from $100,000 to $500,000 per year, for a duration of three years, and will encourage interdisciplinary, collaborative research projects supporting net-zero GHG emissions targets. Projects must involve at least one partner organization that can be recognized for cost sharing.

Alliance Missions grants are intended to provide support for activities that will:

  • promote interdisciplinary collaboration among academic researchers, federal scientists, private sector scientists, and policy makers to increase the scientific information available to support government decision-making to achieve net-zero GHG emissions targets
  • build scientific capacity in earth system climate science; atmospheric monitoring/modelling; and socio-economic analysis to understand anthropogenic GHG emissions at regional to national scales and/or by sector to inform ambitious GHG mitigation opportunities and to improve understanding of how GHG emissions are changing over time
  • advance Canadian knowledge and tools to inform decision-making processes for achievement of net-zero GHG emissions by 2050 through investigation of anthropogenic GHG emissions and their changes over time
