CALL FOR PROPOSALS: 
INTERNATIONAL & INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH WORKSHOPS 

For more than three decades, CIFAR’s global research programs have connected many of the world’s best minds across borders and disciplines to shape new perspectives and spark ground-breaking ideas. Our commitment to sustained research interactions and engagement through interdisciplinary networks offers researchers the rarest of commodities: freedom to take intellectual risks that are essential for creating truly transformative knowledge.

CIFAR (Canadian Institute for Advanced Research) has launched a new opportunity to explore key questions of global importance that can best be addressed through interdisciplinary, international teams. CIFAR invites the global research community to submit proposals for workshops that are centred on complex, fundamental questions of importance to the world. CIFAR will provide up to $50,000CAD to support short-term, time-limited interactions between 10-20 participants. At least one researcher must be based in Canada. Other participants are expected to be geographically diverse.

Topics selected for workshops should have the potential to impact multiple sectors of society internationally. Topics that are timely in the context of world events, high-risk or which have strong potential for advancement or refinement through a collaborative and interdisciplinary approach are encouraged.   

CIFAR will accept proposals for workshops submitted to either an open call or to targeted areas.

  

OPEN CALL

The open call is now accepting workshop proposals from any field of humanities, engineering, social, natural, or biomedical sciences that address critical questions of global importance. Open call workshop proposals will be accepted and assessed on a rolling basis. Please visit the workshop website for more information about the open call, including proposal requirements, evaluation criteria and more. 


TARGET AREAS

CIFAR will be launching targeted calls in the areas of Child Well-being, Quantum Science, Brain/Artificial Intelligence, and the Future of Energy. Proposals submitted under these themes will be assessed based on a predetermined timeline; there will not be rolling submissions. Child Well-being will be the first target area, with an anticipated launch in early March. Please continue to visit the workshop website for more information about the target areas. 

For questions about the workshops, including the open call for proposals or your eligibility to submit under the target areas, please email workshops@cifar.ca.
