YorkU announces $4.05M in CIRC funding for interdisciplinary research projects contributing to UN SDGs


York University has announced that it will be supporting a variety of interdisciplinary research projects that contribute to United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) through its Catalyzing Interdisciplinary Research Clusters (CIRC) program. CIRC will provide $4.05M in funding to support interdisciplinary collaboration, global research excellence, and world-class training opportunities. Funding includes $150K over three years for seven projects. Six other proposals will receive $100K per year for two years. “As the world continues to address urgent global challenges such as climate change, global health crises and political polarization, and their impact on people and the planet, it is critical now more than ever for York to support novel interdisciplinary research collaborations that drive innovative solutions to these grand challenges,” said YorkU President Rhonda Lenton.
