SSHRC investment to foster international collaborative research

The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) is investing more than $2 million over three years to support six Canadian research teams in their collaborations with international partners. SSHRC, together with the Agence Nationale de la Recherche (France), the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (Germany), and the Economic and Social Research Council (United Kingdom), held its seventh instalment of the Open Research Area (ORA) funding opportunity to strengthen international cooperation and fund the best high-quality research.

The six joint social sciences and humanities research projects in which Canadian researchers are participating are among the successful projects in the seventh call of the Open Research Area (ORA 7) launched in summer 2021.

SSHRC recognizes that certain challenges facing the world benefit from international research collaboration in order to have the greatest global impact. We look forward to seeing the advances these research teams will make in the coming years.
