Renewed architecture for SSHRC program


The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) has completed the process of renewing its program architecture in order to create a simpler, more flexible and effective system of application and assessment.

Funding opportunities launched within the renewed architecture will fall under three umbrella programs: Talent, Insight and Connection. To promote these new partnership funding opportunities, SSHRC will be holding a workshop and a series of webinars at Queen’s.

Research in the social sciences and humanities advances knowledge and builds understanding about individuals, groups and societies—what we think, how we live and how we interact with each other and the world around us.

Such research enhances our knowledge and understanding of the past and present, and informs our thinking about critical social, cultural, economic, technological, and environmental issues across the public, private and not-for-profit sectors. Through research, training and knowledge mobilization programs, SSHRC fosters the development of talented and creative people who become leaders across campuses and communities and, thereby, contribute to Canada’s success in the globalized 21st century.

A workshop focused on the renewed architecture is being presented this week. For more information on the workshop and webinars visit the Office of Research Services website.
