A change affecting the application text boxes was introduced in the Research Portal when the system opened at the beginning of August.
Text boxes with character limits now count spaces and carriage returns.
The character count of specific text boxes has been increased.
The Research Portal is intended for use only by individuals participating in the preparation of applications/nominations for funding from the Canada Research Chairs, the Research Support Fund, and other programs of the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), in the administration of awards, and in the merit review of applications.
Before using the Research Portal, you must read the Terms and conditions and Transparency (see below). When you login and use this system, it means that you understand these policies and conditions and you consent to the use of your personal information for administrative purposes.
