This session is of interest to anyone who is interested in knowing more about the relationship between Canada’s federal research-funding agencies for post-secondary research and the universities eligible to receive grants, including Concordia University of Edmonton. The session includes a detailed overview of the Agreement on the Administration of Agency Grants and Awards by Research Institutions (Memorandum of Understanding) that outlines the basic requirements to administer research funds, and the roles and responsibilities of all participants, including university researchers. This session will also introduce the basic program architecture of the three granting agencies: Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC)
