Faculty Town Hall with SSHRC – April 5th, 2017
UBC – VPR and SPARC invite you to attend a Faculty Town Hall with SSHRC.
This is an opportunity to hear first-hand about SSHRC’s new programs and changes in eligibility.
WHO: Tim Wilson, Executive Director, SSHRC Research Grants and Partnerships
WHEN: 1:30-3:30pm on Wednesday 5th April, 2017
WHERE: Fred Kaiser, Room 2020/2030
WHY: Over its 35-year history, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) has focused on building Canada’s capacity to undertake excellent research—and, as a result, has funded Canada’s top researchers and research trainees. Because research “excellence” is an ever-evolving target, its pursuit is both an enduring commitment and a priority. As Executive Director of Research Grants and Partnerships at SSHRC, Tim Wilson is responsible for overseeing all of the Agency’s Grant programs. He will talk about SSHRC funded programs and future plans. This is especially relevant given recent changes to the Insight Grant and eligibility of health related research, and a new stream of Partnership funding.|
