Description

The seventh round of Open Research Area (ORA) for the Social Sciences is based on an agreement among the ANR, France; the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), Germany; the Economic and Social Research Council of UK Research and Innovation (ESRC), UK; and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), Canada.

With the goals of funding high-quality research within their own countries and strengthening international co-operation by working with some of the best researchers internationally, ANRDFGESRC and SSHRC are launching a seventh ORA call for proposals in order to fund the best joint research projects. The scheme will provide funding for integrated projects by researchers coming from at least three of the four subscribing countries.

Proposals may involve any of the disciplines, thematic areas or approaches eligible for SSHRC funding. However, the disciplinary coverage varies according to the involvement of the national agencies. Applicants who are uncertain of whether their proposal would be eligible should contact the relevant national agencies for clarification.

ORA 7 will have a new format as compared to earlier ORA funding opportunities. This competition will follow a one-stage, one-application process consisting of a full proposal. 

National funding agencies will fund proposals according to their respective policies and regulations and the affiliation of the researchers. Canadian teams participating in successful ORA 7 international projects will be funded by SSHRC based on the funding request outlined in the SSHRC National Financial Form.

Eligibility

Applications may be submitted by a team of researchers consisting of one applicant and one or more co-applicants and/or collaborators.

To apply for the SSHRC funding component of the larger ORA 7 funding opportunity, the applicant must be affiliated with an eligible Canadian postsecondary institution at the time of application. Applicants are required to ensure that they comply with all SSHRC policies and regulations and complete the necessary SSHRC-specific documents for submission (see Application process ).

In addition to the required documents for the larger ORA 7 call, the applicant must also submit the SSHRC National Financial Form and the SSHRC Terms and Conditions for Applying documents (submission details under Application process below).

Applicants who have received a SSHRC grant of any type but have failed to submit an achievement report by the deadline specified in their Notice of Award are not eligible to apply for another SSHRC grant until they have submitted the report.

Federal scientists who are affiliated with a Canadian postsecondary institution must demonstrate that their proposed research or research-related activity is not related to the mandate of their employer nor to the normal duties for which they receive payment from that employer.

If the proposal falls within the mandate of the federal government and the research or research-related activity is performed in government facilities, funding can be allocated for student salaries or stipends and travel costs only.

Maximum Project Value

Canadian applicants can request up to $135,000 per year for a maximum of $400,000 

Project Duration

2 to 3 years
