NSERC will match the case contribution of the partner up to a mazimum of $12,500. In-kind contributions are also required.

Application Details:

The application procedures are the same as with an Engage Grant, but must also include a summary of the progress achieved within the original Engage project as well as a clear explanation of the goals of the Engage Plus Grant.

The Industrial partner must provide an updated letter of support that addresses the points listed in the application procedures, as well as outlining assessment of progress to date, and their expectations for the Engage Plus project. please see the sponsor website for full details/
