NSERC’s new modus operandi (1)
April 18, 2009
- add to GSC budgets $x for each one of the new applicants
- add $y as a percentage of the grants of the returning applicants
- require the minimum grant to be $3 times x
- Many returning applicants cut or denied
- Elimination of many smaller grants
- Success rate plummets
Good, bad or ugly? Of course, all this depends on how large $x and $y are.
Let us know what you think and what happened at your GSC!
