June 11, 2015

The Institute is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2015-16 International Research Roundtable Awards.

These research awards support meetings of scholars from the international community, Canada and UBC, for two to five days. Scholars have a unique opportunity to explore broad themes within an interdisciplinary environment, and to advance excellence in research in those areas.
