NSERC Live Q&A Sessions

Posted by Jaq-Lin Larder on June 17, 2024 in Events

NSERC offers a series of pre-recorded videos followed by live Q&A sessions which are meant to assist the research community on how to complete an application using the Research Portal and the NSERC Canadian Common CV (CCV). You will find below the pre-recorded videos as well as the dates for these upcoming live Q&A sessions.

Please view the pre-recorded videos prior to attending a live Q&A session, as the material presented in the videos will not be repeated.

In preparation, you may familiarize yourselves with the following documents:

New this year is the ability to ask questions ahead of each live Q&A session by following the ‘link to questionnaire’ below. Note that each questionnaire is set to open one month before the date of the session and close at midnight two business days before the session. 

Pre-registration is not required to attend the MS Teams live Q&A sessions. The session will be open 15 minutes in advance. Considering the high attendance to the live Q&A sessions, NSERC staff may not have time to respond to all individual questions during the sessions. Any additional questions should be directed to the support team at NSERC Discovery.
