In response to consultations with the research community, and informed by a literature review, the guidelines present a common definition of effective research training across all SSHRC funding opportunities.
The guidelines apply to each of SSHRC’s programs (Talent, Insight and Connection) and are designed to assist the research community in its efforts to promote effective research training and career development as part of its SSHRC-funded research activities.
All SSHRC funding applicants proposing training plans and budgets are encouraged to use the guidelines as a tool to help identify the elements of effective research training. Funding applicants should include in their proposals the dimensions of research training that are the most relevant to their research projects and that can be of most benefit to all parties involved. External reviewers and committee members are also encouraged to use the guidelines to assist in gauging the quality of research training activities proposed in SSHRC applications.
