Round 3 Call for Proposals

The University of Saskatchewan (U of S) and Beijing Institute of Technology (BIT) are pleased to jointly announce a call for applications to support the development of research collaborations between U of S researchers and colleagues at BIT, our Flagship Partner Institution in China. It is expected this funding will enhance the capacity of researchers at the U of S and BIT to jointly pursue and leverage external research funding.

The International Flagship Partnership Research Grants (IFPRG) Program is intended to support:

   1.  workshops to initiate / enhance BIT- U of S research collaboration, and  
   2.  to develop funding proposals for international research involving BIT - U of S groups/consortia.

The IFPRG Program is co-funded by the U of S and BIT on a 1:1 matching basis. The funding will support partnership-building activities, external research grant preparation and submission, and travel related expenses. Proposals should identify and detail proposed international research funding applications as outcomes of the IFRPG grant/collaboration.

The International Office would be pleased to assist in identifying research collaborators and please contact international.office@usask.ca as soon as possible to request match-making assistance.

Silver Jubilee of Omayal Achi

Celebrating the 25th Anniversary of our partnership with Omayal Achi College of Nursing in Chennai, India

Our fruitful partnership began with co-hosting an International Conference on Stroke Prevention and Epidemiology. In 1994 Dr. Vivian Ramsden (Academic Family Medicine) was invited to OACN to provide cardio-pulmonary resuscitation training to Master's students and faculty; as well as, to set up an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) in a community hospital that was facilitating nursing experiences for the students at OACN. That relationship remains today. (continue reading)
