The Networks of Centres of Excellence (NCE) Secretariat has announced a competition to fund networks under a new initiative within the NCE suite of programs – the NCE-International Knowledge Translation Platforms (NCE-IKTP) initiative. The goal of the NCE-IKTP initiative is to support international collaborations between networks, centres, consortia and their partners to accelerate knowledge translation in areas of mutual strategic interest. Proposed networks must be driven to address key problems, challenges or opportunities of high strategic importance for the socio-economic benefit of partners and end users in Canada and abroad. Successfulnetworks will be awarded up to CAD 400,000 per year for four years, with the possibility of a 3-year renewal.
A Letter of Intent (LOI), the first step in the competition process, must be submitted via the NCE’s secure submission site by May 2, 2016. Canada’s economic competitiveness depends not only on developing new discoveries, but also on the ability to transform these discoveries into products, services, and processes. Fostering partnerships involving the public and private sectors, within Canada and internationally, helps achieve these goals. The Networks of Centres of Excellence Secretariat manages four national programs: Networks of Centres of Excellence (NCE) (includes the NCE Knowledge Mobilization and the Canada-India Research Centre of Excellence initiatives); Centresof Excellence for Commercialization and Research (CECR); Business-Led Networks of Centres of Excellence (BL-NCE); and Industrial Research and Development Internship (IRDI).
