Mitacs International Partner Calls

SFU-Mitacs Globalink Research Awards (GRA) support research collaborations between Canada and select partner organizations around the world. In collaboration with international partners, Mitacs has launched a new round of funding calls.

This SFU-Mitacs Globalink Research Award - International Partner call invites proposals that demonstrate alignment with SFU's research priorities as articulated in the SFU Research Strategic Plan. Proposals must demonstrate potential to lead to long-term and multifaceted research collaborations that advance strategic interests. International Partner Calls do not require $2000 contribution funds from PI.
