Joint research projects

In the first Quarter of FY6, over 20 applications for joint research grants were received by the selection committee. The objectives of these partnerships of McGill researchers in a number of Faculties at McGill with researchers at the IAINs were to further Project goals by:

  • Creating or strengthening intellectual links between McGill University and the IAINs in Indonesia which have some prospect of sustainability beyond the life of ICIHEP,
  • Contributing to the development and dissemination of research conducted on topics of interest to the IAINs as they grow and expand their mandates,
  • Enhancing McGill and Canadian knowledge and expertise on Indonesia.

Of the 11 proposals accepted, many included Project alumni. The budgets ($10,000 per grant) included funds for the research in Indonesia and for the research at McGill. Research was carried out in 2000 and 2001.
