Networks of Centres of Excellence

About NCE

The Networks of Centres of Excellence, or NCE, provides targeted funds in areas of strategic importance to Canada: advanced technologies; engineering and manufacturing; health, human development and biotechnology; and environment and natural resources.

In partnership with Industry Canada, the NCE is jointly administered by Canada's three granting agencies: The Canadian Institutes for Health Research (CIHR), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC).
