Partnership Engage Grants are expected to respond to the objectives of the Insight program and the Connection program. However, Partnership Engage Grants cannot respond exclusively to the objectives of the Connection program.
These grants provide short-term and timely support for partnered research activities that will inform decision-making at a single partner organization from the public, private or not-for-profit sector. The small-scale, stakeholder-driven partnerships supported through Partnership Engage Grants are meant to respond to immediate needs and time constraints facing organizations in non-academic sectors. In addressing an organization-specific need, challenge and/or opportunity, these partnerships let non-academic organizations and postsecondary researchers access each other’s unique knowledge, expertise and capabilities on topics of mutual interest.
For tools and resources to assist in the planning and implementation of your partnership, see SSHRC’s Partnerships Tool-Kit.
