The federal government this week announced $44 M in funding through the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) to support research collaboration between private, public, and not-for-profit sectors that will serve to advance understanding of people and society. The funding will be granted as 14 Partnership Grants and 57 Partnership Development Grants. “SSHRC’s funding of research partnerships helps create and sustain a culture of innovation in Canada, and fosters stronger collaboration among academic, private, public and not-for-profit sectors,” said SSHRC President Chad Gaffield. The funding announcement was made at Brandon University; BrandonU will host the Rural Policy Learning Commons initiative, a SSHRC-funded international partnership that aims to improve the social and economic well-being of rural and northern regions in Canada.
