Detailed Description

The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) is seeking applications for its Partnerships Grants Program intended for large teams of postsecondary institutions and/or organizations of various types that work in formal collaboration.

Objectives

The objectives of the Insight program are to:

  • Build knowledge and understanding from disciplinary, interdisciplinary and/or cross-sector perspectives through support for the best researchers;
  • Support new approaches to research on complex and important topics, including those that transcend the capacity of any one scholar, institution or discipline;
  • Provide a high-quality research training experience for students;
  • Fund research expertise that relates to societal challenges and opportunities; and
  • Mobilize research knowledge, to and from academic and non-academic audiences, with the potential to lead to intellectual, cultural, social and economic influence, benefit and impact.

The objectives of the Connection program are to:

  • Enable the multidirectional flow of social sciences and humanities research knowledge among researchers, and across academia and society as a whole, to enhance intellectual, cultural, social and economic influence, benefit and impact;
  • Increase the accessibility and use of social sciences and humanities research knowledge among academic and non-academic audiences;
  • Support the building of reciprocal relationships among social sciences and humanities researchers, and between the researchers and those in a position to either co-create or use research knowledge;
  • Support the development of social sciences and humanities research networks and tools designed to enable scholarly work; and
  • Make such networks and tools more accessible to non-academic audiences.
