Researching Your Opportunities
There are a wide range of agencies that support international research, broadly defined. In researching your options, the following sources might be useful.
a. Funding Guide for International Science and Technology Cooperation (Funding Guide) - This guide provides an excellent searchable database by country and agency.
b. The Office of Liaison with International Financial Institutions (OLIFI), based at the Canadian Embassy in Washington D.C., provides a number of services for faculty interested in exploring training, evaluation and advisory services with the multilateral and regional development banks (e.g. Inter-American Development Bank, World Bank). They have published several reports that provide excellent advice on sectoral areas of interest to University of Saskatchewan faculty (e.g., governance, water and sanitation, environment, education).
International research programs adhere to the same policies and procedures for contracts and grants . University overhead policy is discussed here. Some procedures may depend on particular circumstances so faculty are advised to contact the International Research unit.
