Canadian Mountain Network Webinar: Developing a Letter of Intent for a Mountain NCE
On Monday, April 10, 2017, the Canadian Mountain Network hosted a webinar regarding Developing a Letter of Intent (LOI) for a Mountain NCE
The CMN presented revised Mountain NCE research themes and modes of doing research and is looking for input on the development of a LOI that will be submitted to the anticipated Networks of Centres of Excellence (NCE) competition opening in April 2017 (LOI expected to be due August 2017).
Networks of Centres of Excellence is a Federally-funded program designed “to mobilize Canada’s research talent in the academic, private, public, and not-for-profit sectors and apply it to the task of developing the economy and improving the quality of life of Canadians.” The LOI will determine which applicants will be invited to submit full applications. More information regarding the required components of the LOI can be found here, and more information about the NCE Program can be found here.
Topics of discussion included the various components of the LOI. These include but were not limited to the following:
– The revised list of five research themes;
– The three modes of doing research;
– Highly Qualified Personnel (HQP) Programming;
– Knowledge and Technology Exchange and Exploitation;
– Excellence of the research program;
– Networking and Partnerships;
The CMN invites your feedback in the writing of the LOI. Please send any feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org or access the Webinar Feedback forms here
