The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada has announced the 15 recipients of $24.75M in funding over the next six years for the Collaborative Research and Training Experience (CREATE) program. The grants will support the careers of students and postdoctoral fellows as they develop research and other professional skills in areas of research ranging from additive manufacturing and autonomous vehicles to urban forestry and cannabis production. Each research team received $1.65M in funding. “The multidisciplinary teams that CREATE supports provide outstanding mentoring and skills training opportunities,” said NSERC President Alejandro Adem. “These complement the research training that students receive and position them well to succeed at the vanguard of Canadian science and engineering.” NSERC (National)
