Collaborative Research and Training Experience at McGill

The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) of Canada's Collaborative Research and Training Experience (CREATE) Program supports the training of teams of highly qualified students and postdoctoral fellows from Canada and abroad through the development of innovative training programs that:

  • encourage collaborative and integrative approaches, and address significant scientific challenges associated with Canada’s research priorities;
  • facilitate the transition of new researchers from trainees to productive employees in the Canadian workforce.

​The CREATE Program is designed to improve the mentoring and training environment for the Canadian researchers of tomorrow by improving training in areas such as professional skills, communication and collaboration, as well as providing experience relevant to both academic and non-academic research environments. 

As a McGill graduate student, you can benefit from unique training opportunities by joining one of the CREATE networks hosted by McGill. See below for a complete list.
