The NCE Secretariat has launched the 2013 competition for the NCE Knowledge Mobilization (NCE-KM) initiative. The NCE-KM initiative supports networking and collaboration among well-established research teams and knowledge users to further the application and mobilization of knowledge. Funding supports national multi-disciplinary, multi-sectoral networks in applying and mobilizing the results of world-class research for the social, economic, technological and/or wellness benefit of Canadians.
Proposed NCE-KM networks must be driven to address key problems, challenges or opportunities of high strategic importance to the end user community and Canadians in general. Their activities must be multi-disciplinary and significantly involve key individuals in areas that fall under the domains of at least two of the three federal granting agencies. Successful networks will be awarded up to $400,000 per year for four years, with a possible three-year extension.
The first step in this NCE-KM competition consists of submitting a Notification of Intent, with a submission deadline of November 6, 2012. Please note that this step is voluntary but strongly recommended, as it will allow NCE staff to advise applicants early in the process whether they meet the eligibility requirements of the 2013 NCE-KM Competition with regard to host eligibility and multi-disciplinary collaboration.
