The Inclusive Society Partnership Research Program is a funding opportunity. It will support collaborative research projects for up to $35,000.

The program will support innovative projects that aim to:

• produce concrete changes in the lives of people with disabilities

• support the transformation of associated ecosystems (caregivers, community organizations, public agencies)

• implement solutions to reduce the environmental and social barriers that people with disabilities face in their daily activities.

The principal partner must be a non-profit organization (NPO) that has a disability-related mission and a charitable number (e.g., a community-based organization). The research team submitting a project proposal includes two principal investigators, each representing a different scientific sector. The proposed project must cover at least two of the following three scientific sectors: Nature and Technology; Health; and Society and Culture.
