New agreement with European Research Council to provide research opportunities for CRCs and Banting fellows in Europe

The Canada Research Chairs Programs Steering Committee is pleased to announce that the European Commission and the Canadian Tri-agency Institutional Programs Secretariat (TIPS) have partnered to provide research opportunities in Europe for Canada Research Chairholders (CRC) and Banting Fellows. This arrangement will allow them to pursue collaborations with European researchers already supported through EU-funded European Research Council grants.

This initiative is intended to enable the collaboration of European researchers and CRCs through a single, long-term visit (up to 12 months) or through multiple short-term visits (e.g., for joint research projects) of CRCs in Europe. It is an exciting opportunity for Canada Research Chairholders to formalize collaborations with their European counterparts to advance their mutual research objectives.

For more information on the European Research Council please see their website.

Please note that the details for implementing this initiative are being finalized. TIPS will be communicating further information to participating institutions and Canada Research Chairholders in the upcoming months.
