CBERN Receives two SSHRC Grants to Fund Projects on Responsible Development in Northern Canada
CBERN’s letter of intent application for the Community-University Research Alliances (CURA) program, “Northern Communities: Towards Social and Economic Prosperity” was successful. A $20,000 grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) has been awarded to CBERN to develop the project entitled the “Socially Responsible Development in the Rapidly Evolving Canadian North.” The grant will focus on preparing a formal application for a long term CURA project on knowledge dissemination and ethically responsible mining. An individual CURA can receive funding of up to $200,000 annually for up to five years. For further information, visit: www.cbern.ca/research/projects/csr/sshrccura/index.html
In addition, CBERN has been awarded a year-long $75,000 SSHRC Northern Communities Public Dissemination grant. The focus will be ethically responsible economic development in the Canadian and circumpolar north. For further information, visit: www.cbern.ca/research/projects/csr/sshrcpublicoutreach/index.html
