Information Session: SSHRC Partnership-Type Grants

May 16, 2018 at 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM

Location:482 MacOdrum Library

Have you been thinking about how your research can provide intellectual, cultural, social and economic influence, benefit and impact on and beyond the campus? Are you wondering how you can support the activities and tools to facilitate the flow and exchange of research knowledge?  If yes, you’re moving into the realm of a partnership-type grant.

What is the difference between a team of researchers and a formal partnership?

While both involve groups who have come to an agreement to work together on a project, the main difference lies in the nature of the agreement. A team of researchers consists of an individual applicant involved in an informal arrangement with other individual researchers, while a formal partnership consists of an applicant involved in a formal arrangement with institutional and/or community partners.

Please join us at our information session –

10:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon

In this interactive workshop, we will cover best practices for developing research partnerships in the arts, social sciences, humanities and business with a particular focus on SSHRC programming available to support such partnerships.

We will discuss:

  • partnerships in general
  • partnership engagement – meaningful relationships, contributions, tangible benefits
  • team dynamics
  • type and scope of projects

We will also provide

  • information about what kinds of projects are most competitive under the Partnership Engage (PEG), Partnership Development (PDG) and the Partnership (PG) Grants,
  • insight into how to prepare a funding application in support of your partnership.

The information session will also feature comments from a previous adjudicator, and grant holders, in the SSHRC partnership programs.

Questions and comments are most welcome.

Registration is not required.
