This message is being sent on behalf of Helen Burt, VP Research, pro tem—please circulate widely, as appropriate:
The 2019 Networks of Centres of Excellence competition has finally launched! The LOI deadline is November 15 2017 at 4:30pm, but please note registration of intention to submit an LOI is due to the NCE Secretariat on or before August 23 2017.
Given the tight timeline of this competition, I wanted to share with you some information regarding recent changes to the program and the internal processes we have designed to help support the development of competitive LOIs, for teams who wish to apply to the program. In the attached document you will find information, an overview of changes to the program, timelines for the competition and our internal processes, and submission details.
To help teams develop their LOIs, we will be hosting a workshop, providing financial management support, and organizing a full review of draft LOIs before the competition deadline. If you are interested in applying to the program, I encourage you to contact Kyle Demes [firstname.lastname@example.org] in my office or Dawn Whitworth [email@example.com] in SPARC as soon as possible to ensure that you are on our internal communications list for this competition.
