Connections & Collaborations

One of our main goals at the Institute for Technoscience & Society (ITS) is to help members build and strengthen their research connections and collaborations, whether that is to others in Canada or around the world. We have created a list of relevant research centres and institutes where you can look for these important research connections and collaborations. We are happy to help you make contact with potential collaborators through our professional contacts and networks. Please get in touch if you would like an introduction or contact.

Connected Minds Initiative

ITS is an Associated Research Unit of the new Connected Minds: Neural and Machine Systems for a Healthy, Just Society initiative. Connected Minds is a $105.6 million, seven-year interdisciplinary research initiative led by York University and funded by the federal government through the Canada First Research Excellence Fund (CFREF) program. Members of ITS can become members of Connected Minds and gain access research funding for projects, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students.
