Natural Sciences and Engineering Research

  • As part of its mandate to promote and support, and coordinate the funding of, research in the health, natural and social sciences, engineering and the humanities in Manitoba, Research Manitoba is happy to highlight the funding of programs targeted at NATURAL SCIENCES AND ENGINEERING (NSE) trainees and investigators.

    Research Manitoba will continue to consult with stakeholders in the NSE community to identify the needs of the research community, and will move towards broadening our programming as additional sources of funding become available in the coming years.

    In the 2017 Provincial Budget, Research Manitoba received a $2 million cut to its budget, which is now $15 million annually. 

    Research Manitoba is reviewing its organizational priorities and will align our programs with strategic goals identified through this process.  This could mean significant change for existing programs and will result in a delayed roll-out of 2018 programming and research competitions.  Research Manitoba values stakeholder input and wishes to provide every reasonable opportunity for engagement in this process. 

    The first step in this process is a stakeholder survey, which is available at:

    The survey will end on Friday, September 15, 2017.
