Steacie Memorial Fellowships» has written Breanna Gricken, Program Assistant of NSERC Innovative Collaborations and Science Promotion Division, to Mario Pagliaro.

The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) had requested Dr Pagliaro's assistance in reviewing the suitability of a nomination for an E.W.R. Steacie Memorial Fellowship.

Every year, the Council awards up to six Steacie Fellowships to recognize early-stage academic researchers in the natural sciences and engineering and support them to enhance their research capacity, so that they can become leaders in their field and inspire others. Each Fellowship is awarded for a two-year period.

Successful Fellows receive a research grant of $250,000 over two years, held at a Canadian university or affiliated research institution, and are relieved from teaching and administrative duties so they can devote their full work time to research. In addition, NSERC normally contributes up to $90,000 per year to the university toward the Steacie fellow’s salary, expecting the university to fund a replacement for the fellow’s teaching and administrative responsibilities.

Amid Italy's most cited scholars in nanotechnology, organic chemistry and the bioecconomy, Dr Pagliaro acts a reviewer for several national research agencies and Ministries across the world .

Former Presiden of Canada's  National Research Council, Edgar William Richard Steacie was a leading chemistry scholar whose laboratory at McGill University was one of the leading centres for the study of chemical kinetics. Professor Steaci devised the successful program of NRC postdoctoral fellowships.
