All applications for funding support from Green ITS should be jointly developed by academic researchers and participating industry partners. As the program comprises a well-defined research strategy designed to meet a broad spectrum of objectives, proposed projects must align with specified Green ITS milestones.
Green ITS Applications, which must include both short project summary and detailed NSERC-CRD form components, should be submitted to the Research Finance Officer. Applications will be accepted on an ongoing basis throughout the duration of the program. Click here to download the Green ITS application, which includes:
- Green ITS project, commercialization, and budget summary form
- Budget Guidelines
- List of Green ITS Milestones
- Link to the online NSERC-CRD form
It is expected that all proposals with cash contributions from industry partners will also be submitted to a federal government funding agency, such as NSERC, APC, or Auto21, to secure matching funds.
The scientific merit and strategic importance of each proposal will be evaluated by both the Green ITS Advisory Board and a committee of peer reviewers. Final approval of proposal funding is the responsibility of the Advisory Board; however recommendations obtained from impartial experts are required to support each funding decision.
Recommendations provided by review committees recruited to evaluate applications for matching federal funding will serve as sufficient for the peer review requirements of Green ITS. In cases where federal funding is not pursued, applicants must provide a list of 3 referees to whom Green ITS may send proposals for evaluation.
