Simon Fraser University researchers will use $11 million from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council to advance technology's role in health care delivery and education and assess government restructuring.

The university has secured three of seven nationally awarded projects funded through SSHRC's initiative on the new economy (INE), each valued at $3 million - the largest INE grant total secured by one university.

Funding for two other $1 million projects involving SFU faculty will come from SSHRC's community-university research alliances (CURA) funding program.

Marc Renaud, SSHRC president, calls the investment “a huge achievement for a single university,” while SFU President Michael Stevenson says the university nearly doubles the annual research grant funding it has received from SSHRC in the past.

SFU faculty members Ellen Balka (communication), Phil Winne, David Kaufman and Mark Fettes (all education) and Marjorie Griffin-Cohen (political science and women's studies) are leading the five projects.
