Interdisciplinary research teams funded by Ideas Lab on Global Health and Wellness for the 21st Century

May 9, 2024

The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada and the Public Health Agency of Canada are awarding close to $1 million in total to four research teams as part of the Imagining Canada’s Future (ICF) Ideas Lab: Global Health and Wellness for the 21st Century.

The ICF Ideas Lab is a pilot funding opportunity designed to encourage innovative research partnerships and projects. Ideas Labs create new research collaborations that transcend institutional and disciplinary silos, to encourage different ways of thinking. This makes them well suited to addressing complex, global challenges such as health and wellness. 

The four teams, selected following a two-stage review process, will explore research areas falling under the umbrella of Global Health and Wellness for the 21st Century, from maternal and newborn health care in the prison system, to engagement and advocacy around the impacts of climate change on public health:

The grants provide recipients two years to further develop their partnerships and advance their research projects.
