Online Information Session for Potential CRT Applicants

> français

There will be an online information session on January 20, 2016 for those who plan to submit a Letter of Intent for the CANSSI Collaborative Research Team (CRT) projects.  If you’d like to take part in this session, please respond to info@canssi.ca before January 5, 2016.  That will allow enough time to make sure your institution is set up for the information session.  Please note that participation in this session is not a requirement for submission of a Letter of Intent.  This session is for those who want to know more about the application process or have questions about the CRTs.

A
 proposed 
project
 should 
have 
a 
significant 
component 
which 
is 
NSERC‐fundable 
in
 the
sense 
of 
developing 
new
 statistical 
science 
methodology, 
or 
applying 
methods 
in
 an innovative 
way 
to 
an 
NSERC 
funded 
discipline.  


It 
should 
be 
suitable 
for 
a 
three-year
 agenda,
 where
 the
 first
 and
 third
 years
 
 would feature organizational
 and dissemination
 workshops
 respectively.
 
 There
 should
 be
 roles
 for
 interns
 and/or student 
trainees 
in
 each of 
the 
project 
years, 
and 
a 
project 
could
 include 
support 
for postdoctoral 
fellows.

The
 funding
 from
 CANSSI
 for
 a
 Collaborative
 Research
 Team
 Project
 would
 be approximately
 $180,000
 over
 the
 three
 years.  

This 
would 
provide
 partial 
support
 for
 trainees,
 travel
 for
 collaboration,
 and
 workshops.
 It
 is
 expected
 that
 at
 least
 60%
 of
 the
 CANSSI
 portion
 of
 the
 project
 funding
 would
 support
 trainees
 at
 the
 undergraduate, graduate 
or 
postdoctoral
 levels.

Projects
 in
 application
 areas
 and
 in
 the
 core
 of
 the
 statistical
 sciences
 will
 be considered.
 The
 evaluation
 criteria
 will
 be
 the
 strength
 of
 the
 proposal,
 the
 importance 
of 
the 
research to 
science 
and
 the 
public 
interest, 

the 
excellence 
of 
the
 researchers,
 the
 potential
 for leverage
 of
 CANSSI
 funds,
 the
 sustainability
 of
 the
 collaboration,

 the
 national
 scope
 of
 the
 project,
 the
 potential
 for
 development
 of
 international 
collaboration, 
and
 the
 likely effectiveness
 of 
the
 team
 structure.
