Collaborative Research Program
The ISSS Collaborative Research Program (CRP) provides an opportunity for Doctoral Students and Early Career Researchers (less than 5 years post-PhD) to work with leading researchers in the field on a dedicated research project. Now in its third year, the CRP offers developing researchers a chance to expand their networks and learn from researchers outside their supervisory team. Hear from our 2020-2021 participants below.
