1) Launch of the Fall CU SSHRC Exchange Program

We are pleased to announce the launch of the 2019 Fall CU SSHRC Exchange Program, which comprises the following internal competitions for researchers in the social sciences and humanities:

Knowledge Mobilization Grant (up to $7,000) to support costs associated with knowledge dissemination activities associated with research projects in the social sciences and humanities when other funding sources are not available.

Conference Travel Grant (up to $3,000) to support costs associated with the dissemination of research findings at a conference when other funding sources are not available.

DEADLINE: October 30, 2019

All full-time faculty of professorial rank (Assistant, Associate, Full) are eligible to apply.
See CORIS web site for full details.

2) New Frontiers in Research Fund (NFRF) – Transformation Stream

We are anticipating a call for proposals in October 2019 for the Transformation Stream of the New Frontiers in Research Fund. The Transformation stream is designed to support large-scale, Canadian-led interdisciplinary research projects that address a major challenge with the potential to realize real and lasting change (high reward). The challenge may be fundamental, leading to a scientific breakthrough, or applied, with a social, economic, environmental or health impact. Projects are expected to be world-leading, drawing on global research expertise, where relevant.

The Transformation stream grants will support projects that:

  • tackle a well-defined problem or challenge;
  • propose a novel world-leading approach that is different from the current state-of-the art approaches to the issue;
  • are interdisciplinary, bringing different perspectives to the defined problem; and
  • have the potential to be transformative, defined as the potential to create a significant and real change or impact—a noticeable leap or tangible breakthrough versus an incremental advance.

Further details can be found here. As these are large-scale, interdisciplinary research projects, if you are considering applying, please contact a Research Facilitator to discuss further.
