The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) and Genome Canada have partnered to offer a Knowledge Synthesis Grants (KSG) funding opportunity to foster a deeper understanding of the state of knowledge about the shifting dynamics of privilege and marginalization. A maximum of 30 grants of up to $30,000 each will be awarded.
KSGs stimulate knowledge mobilization by supporting the synthesis of existing knowledge on a topic to inform the development of effective policies, practices, tools and technologies required to support the path toward a prosperous and equitable future for all Canadians. KSGs may also assist in developing future research agendas.
Recipients of the KSGs on the shifting dynamics of privilege and marginalization will consider how the world’s power dynamics are being reshaped, at individual, community and societal levels, as a result of various factors, such as sociopolitical events; new technologies, including genomics; dis/mis/information; and the COVID-19 pandemic.
Researchers will share their findings with key stakeholders from across sectors at the Imagining Canada’s Future Forum, which will be held in late 2023 or early 2024.
The deadline for submission is December 15, 2022 (8:00 p.m. eastern).
