McGill-led partnership projects receive SSHRC funding

Interdisciplinary projects use novel approaches to advance understanding of critical issues
Wed, 2014-08-27 17:26

Three innovative research partnerships at McGill University have received significant long-term investments from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) partnership grants program, totaling more than $6.8 million.
