The Office of the Privacy
Commissioner of Canada (OPC) has announced the renewal of funding for privacy
research through the Office's 2007-2008 Contributions Program, and is actively
encouraging the submission of proposals.
Created in June 2004 to
further the development of a national research capacity in Canada, the
Contributions Program was set up to catalyze independent research in areas that
have been identified as priorities by the Office.
Attached is the link the
section of OPC site devoted to research funded by the Office. More information
on the Program is available there: http://www.privcom.gc.ca/information/cp/index_e.asp
The OPC would be much
obliged if you could forward this message to researchers in your institutions
with an interest in issues related to privacy promotion and protection--e.g.
disciplines such as law, engineering, information technology, consumer rights,
and social sciences.
For more information,
Senior Research Officer
Office of the Privacy
Commissioner of Canada,
Thank you in advance for
your kind consideration of this matter.
