Also in the coming year, there is expected to be a harmonization of grants management system integration of NSERC and SSHRC under review(CIHR is not included). A proposal with government. The hope is to merge existing portals into one portal. This may involve some revision of the CCV.

- new Partnership Engage grants.
There are new joint initiatives with MITACS, Sport, Defense, and Genomics
