SSHRC – Public Outreach -Workshops and Conferences

This is a one-time call for proposals. Public Outreach opportunities will be updated in 2012 under SSHRC’s Program Architecture Renewal.

The Public Outreach Grants: Workshops and Conferences funding opportunity supports knowledge mobilization events directed primarily to non-academic audiences. See below for supported events under this opportunity.

Deadlines:
Faculty of Education Assoc Dean’s Office: 1 week before agency deadline (if you wish feedback on your application please submit 2-3 weeks early to Karen Kueneman)
Research Development & Services: At least 3 days before agency deadline
SSHRC: November 28, 2011

Value:
Applicants must situate their proposals within one of three funding levels: under $50,000, $50,000 to $100,000, and over $100,000.

Description: Public Outreach Grants are designed to mobilize and/or leverage existing and ongoing research in the social sciences and humanities for a range of audiences beyond academia. Through this funding opportunity, SSHRC encourages researchers to find effective ways to disseminate, transfer, exchange, synthesize and broker research results to wider audiences.

The Public Outreach Grants: Workshops and Conferences includes:

  • Workshops: Smaller, invitational, interactive events that link researcher(s) and target audience(s). Applicants are encouraged to produce a concrete deliverable where appropriate (synthesis, report, policy document, etc.).
  • Conferences: Larger, possibly interactive, open events that link target audience(s) and researcher(s). Applicants are encouraged to produce a concrete deliverable where appropriate (synthesis, report, policy document, etc.).
  • Innovation forums: A new initiative from SSHRC, innovation forums are brainstorming events that: a) are short, small in scope and intensive; b) include participants from both academic and non-academic sectors; and c) use interactive, facilitated formats organized around setting new research agendas and/or developing new research questions or methodologies.
  • Summer institutes: Drawn from the Image, Text, Sound and Technology funding opportunity, a summer institute is an intensive, short, interactive event that facilitates the mobilization of cutting-edge digital media technologies and skills to researchers, students and other audiences where appropriate.

NOTE: Public Outreach Grants are not intended to support traditional means of dissemination to the research community (such as academic conferences).
Applicants cannot submit an application to the Public Outreach Grants: Workshops and Conferences funding opportunity and the Aid to Research Workshops and Conferences funding opportunity in the same calendar year.

Eligibility: Applicants must be eligible to hold a research grant at Western.

Full Applications are to be accompanied by a completed ROLA proposal.

Workshops and Conferences – Guidelines and application forms are not yet available but should be posted soon.
