The next deadline for applications to the Peter wall Institute’s International Research Roundtables program is May 1, 2017. The program is designed to advance excellence in knowledge development in an interdisciplinary environment. The themes or topics must be broad-ranging. International Research Roundtables are aimed at fostering excellence in research, and serving as a catalyst for collaborative research between international scholars and UBC scholars.

Up to 5 International Research Roundtables will be awarded annually. The award will support meeting expenses for a Roundtable at the Peter Wall Institute in Vancouver, Canada, for two to five days. The proposed budget may range from $20,000 to $45,000. Award funds may be used to cover accommodation, meals and travel costs, for up to 20 participants for the duration of the Roundtable.
