Joint Calls for Proposals


Through engagement in meaningful research collaborations with international partners, U of T faculty and students contribute to solving complex global problems. The Office of the Vice President, International helps support this work through various joint calls for research proposals with select international institutions. The collaborations supported through this seed funding leverage each institution’s unique research strengths, foster the mobility of researchers, and accelerate discovery.

Each call varies with respect to project length, allocated funding, and prioritized field depending on the nature of the partnership. The calls are advertised to U of T faculty and staff via U of T Research Alerts. Proposals are evaluated based on the expected academic gains of the project, the impact of the collaboration, trainee & early career researcher involvement, and the capacity for future collaboration.
