SSHRC would like to take this opportunity to inform you of the launch of the next Knowledge Synthesis Grants competition linked to the Imagining Canada’s Future initiative.

In this competition, proposals are sought that address the question How will Canada continue to thrive in an interconnected world and evolving global landscape?  These grants are not intended to support original research; rather they are intended to support the synthesis of existing research knowledge on the topic and the identification of knowledge strengths and gaps.

The funding opportunity description is currently posted on SSHRC’s website with an application deadline of January 12, 2017 and results will be announced to applicants in March 2017.

We anticipate offering up to 30 awards valued at up to $25,000 each. The synthesis reports are due in October 2017. Successful applicants are expected to attend two knowledge mobilization workshops in Ottawa, the first in May 2017 and the second in November 2017 as part of the Imagining Canada’s Future Fall Forum, to discuss the knowledge syntheses. Travel costs for these meetings must be included in the budget submitted as part of the application. Details on the meetings will be provided to successful applicants.
