Active Programs

The Institute provides support to invite outstanding international scholars to work collaboratively with UBC faculty members on innovative research.

Big ideas. Time and space to explore them. The Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies at the University of British Columbia (UBC) will grant up to five International Research Roundtable Awards each year for scholars from UBC, Canada and the international community.

The Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies Wall Scholars Research Award is available to full-time, tenured or tenure-stream UBC faculty members, to spend one year in residence at the Peter Wall Institute, in a collaborative, interdisciplinary environment.

The Wall Solutions Initiative enables UBC faculty members to address issues of societal importance through innovative, interdisciplinary and academically rigorous research projects. UBC researchers engage with end-users or community partners to develop innovative research solutions that can be adopted by those end-users or other target communities.
