SSHRC and Horizon 2020 Migration Call for Proposals

SSHRC has launched a call for proposals in support of Canadian researchers’ engagements with European research consortia funded through the Horizon 2020 research platform of the European Union (EU). This is the second round to be held for this SSHRC funding opportunity, in alignment with Horizon 2020’s societal challenge 6: Europe in a changing world—Inclusive, innovative and reflective societies.  The 2020 call for proposals encourages Canadian researchers to collaborate with research teams from various EU member states to answer critical social science questions related to migration issues, including the protection of refugees and the integration of migrant children in host countries.

NOTE: Researchers applying for SSHRC support are responsible for initiating contact with eligible EU researchers and teams to form a consortium, participating in proposal development, and carrying out the proposed research.

  • For general information on international co-operation and participation, consult the H2020 Online Manual.
  • For detailed information about participating on an EU research team, visit the EU H2020 website.

Deadline: All application materials must be submitted as PDFs in either official language and be received by SSHRC by 8:00 p.m. (eastern), March 12, 2020.
