This is the second Call for Proposals (CFP) for Research Grants offered by the Human-Centric Cybersecurity Partnership (HC2P). This round will offer ten grants of up to $25,000, making available $250,000 for such projects. Projects must target some aspect of the three primary research clusters of HC2P: (#1) society and public policy cluster, (#2) regulatory cluster, or (#3) behavioural cluster. Priority is given to proposals that address the stated research needs of HC2P’s partner organizations (a list is provided here: https://www.hc2p.ca/).
Applicants who wish to demonstrate the utility of their projects for policy are invited to submit a letter of support from a relevant government department, a company, or a non-profit, along with their application.
The principal investigator (and holder of funds) identified in the application must hold a faculty position at a Canadian university, and be a co-investigator of HC2P, in good standing. Those not yet affiliated may apply for affiliation prior to submitting a proposal (see below). Research Assistants may include graduate students, and Partners are generally either governmental or non-governmental institutions.
We particularly welcome applications from supervisors on behalf of their PhD students for funding for students in support of a defined portion of their PhD research.
To become an affiliate, HC2P requires the completion of an application, submission of a recent CV and, and a brief (1/2 page) statement of how one's research agenda is related to the activities of HC2P. To be eligible for applying to this Call, the principal investigator should submit a request for affiliation alongside a grant application.
