Partnership Engage Grants are expected to respond to the objectives of the Insight program and the Connection program. They provide short-term and timely support for partnered research activities that will inform decision-making at a single partner organization from the public, private or not-for-profit sector. The small-scale, stakeholder-driven partnerships supported through the Partnership Engage Grants are meant to respond to immediate needs and time constraints facing organizations in non-academic sectors. In addressing an organization-specific need, challenge and/or opportunity, these partnerships let non-academic organizations and postsecondary researchers access each other’s unique knowledge, expertise and capabilities on topics of mutual interest.
SSHRC welcomes applications involving Aboriginal research, as well as those involving research-creation.
Here are the six future challenge areas selected by SSHRC through the Imagining Canada’s Future initiative. Possible subquestions under each challenge area may include, but are not limited to, the ideas listed.
- What new ways of learning, particularly in higher education, will Canadians need in order to thrive in an evolving society and labour market?
- What effects will the quest for energy and natural resources have on our society and our position on the world stage?
- How are the experiences and aspirations of Aboriginal Peoples in Canada essential to building a successful shared future?
- What might the implications of global peak population be for Canada?
- How can emerging technologies be leveraged to benefit Canadians?
- What knowledge will Canada need in order to thrive in an interconnected, evolving global landscape?
Deadline to apply is 8:00 pm EST September 15, 2017
