Current funding opportunities include: Connection Grants Insight Grants Insight Development Grants Partnership Development Grants Partnership Grants – Letter of Intent

Connection Grants Created to support events and activities geared toward short-term, targeted knowledge mobilization initiatives, these events and activities represent opportunities to exchange knowledge and to engage on research findings of value to those participating. Events and outreach activities funded by a Connection Grant may often serve as a first step toward more comprehensive and longer-term projects potentially eligible for funding through other SSHRC funding opportunities. Connection Grants support workshops, colloquiums, conferences, forums, summer institutes or other events or activities that facilitate:  disciplinary and/or interdisciplinary exchanges in the humanities and social sciences;  scholarly exchanges between those working in the social sciences and humanities and those working in other research fields;  intersectoral exchanges between academic researchers in the humanities and social sciences and researchers and practitioners from the public, private and/or not-for-profit sectors; and/or  international research collaboration and scholarly exchanges between researchers, students and non-academic partners from other countries.

SSHRC partnership grants provide opportunities for Canadian and international businesses to work jointly with researchers in the social sciences and humanities and with other partners. Download brochure

develop research and related activities in the social sciences and humanities, including knowledge mobilization and the meaningful involvement of students and new scholars, by fostering new partnerships for research and related activities involving existing and/or potential partners; or design and test new partnership approaches for research and/or related activities that may result in best practices or models that either can be adapted by others or have the potential to be scaled up to a regional, national or international level.

The federal budget, as noted in the 2012 Economic Action Plan, announced an increase of $7 million per year to SSHRC for industry-academic partnerships to commence in 2012-13. As a result, SSHRC encourages applicants to involve partners from the private sector, including associations, in their partnership. Private sector organizations are also invited to visit SSHRC’s Partnerships for Success section of its website.

SSHRC Welcomes Applications Involving Research-Creation Recognizing the importance of research-creation in the social sciences and humanities, and the expertise of artistresearchers, SSHRC is integrating research-creation as an eligible activity across its Talent, Insight and Connection programs. SSHRC defines “research-creation” as a creative process that comprises an essential part of a research activity, and fosters the development and renewal of knowledge through aesthetic, technical, instrumental or other innovations. See Definitions of Terms for more details. Beginning with the October 2012 Insight Grants competition, applicants will be able to request support for projects involving research-creation. Eventually, research-creation activities will be eligible for support through most of SSHRC’s funding opportunities, with newly launched competitions adding “creative outputs” to their evaluation criteria as an option for evidence of expertise. Applicants whose proposals involve research-creation will have the opportunity, in the CV portion of their applications, to provide a link to a website showcasing their creative outputs or research-creation achievements.

European Research Area (ERA)-Can: Promoting Canada EU Research through the European Framework Programme (FP7) ERA-Can encourages and facilitates Canadian researchers and research organizations to collaborate with European researchers under the Seventh Framework Programme. By connecting with European researchers, Canadians can increase the quality of their networks and the impact of their resources and projects. Canadian researchers are eligible to participate on a self-funded basis. In exceptional circumstances, if the proposal can successfully make the case that a Canadian partner’s participation is both essential to the project’s success and that it represents a unique expertise not available in Europe, Canadians may also be eligible to receive funding directly from the European Commission.
