NSCC researchers, depending on the project details, may be subject to other NSCC policies such as those related to procurement, human resources, confidentiality, and distribution of institutional data. In addition, there may be restrictions on the use of students as research subjects, and this issue should be discussed with the Applied Research Office when projects are being formulated.
