Canadian Institute for Advanced Research

http://www.ciar.ca

The Canadian Institute for Advanced Research (CIAR) was founded in 1982. CIAR provides funding for researchers studying issues in the sciences and social sciences. It funds researchers who “tackle problems that challenge our understanding of the world, or that are of crucial importance to our future well-being, as individuals and as a society.” CIAR funds basic (rather than applied) research, and in some cases, facilitates the transfer of this knowledge to both the public and private sector. CIAR receives funding from foundations, corporations, individuals and governments. The Institute is a private, non-profit, non-partisan organization.

The Institute supports a number of different programs; anywhere from six to forty researchers working on a program at a given time. Researchers from across Canada, and around the world, work on each program. The Institute’s goal is to gather the best researchers in the world for its projects, which include cover such diverse topics as cosmology and gravity, evolutionary biology, nanoelectronics, quantum materials, and successful societies.
