Carleton University had a record-breaking year in research funding in 2018 and the Faculty of Public Affairs was an important part of that success.

According to an article on the Carleton University website, “Carleton jumped to $70,298,000 in 2018 compared to $54,369,000 the previous year — a 29.3 per cent increase, according to the just-released annual rankings from Re$earch Infosource Inc., one of Canada’s leading R&D analysis organizations.”

That was a larger increase than at any other comprehensive university in Canada.

The trend was also reflected in the Faculty of Public Affairs, which had a very successful year in research funding in both 2018 and 2019.

Among the highlights was a 14.4 million dollar grant awarded to Professor Stephan Schott of the School of Public Policy and Administration (SPPA) and his colleagues at a number of universities by Genome Canada. The project, entitled “FISHES: Fostering Indigenous Small-scale fisheries for Health, Economy, and Food Security” will develop and apply genomic approaches in concert with Traditional Ecological Knowledge to address critial challenges and opportunities related to food security and commercial, recreation and subsistence fisheries of northern Indigenous Peoples in Canada.

Other highlights included:

• FPA’s first two National Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) grants awarded:
• Professor Lynda Khalaf in Economics (Discovery),
• Professor Vicky McArthur (Engage with support from IBM Canada)

• SSHRC Partnership Grant awarded to FPA-led team for third year in a row. This year’s winner was Professor Steven Saideman in the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs (NPSIA).

Results from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) tell a similar story. During the September 2018 – August 2019 funding cycle, FPA researchers received a Partnership Grant, a Partnership Development Grant, four Partnership Engage Grants, seven Insight Grants, seven Insight Development Grants, and three Connection Grants.
