The International Research Chairs Initiative (IRCI) is a seven-year, CA$8 million research program that pairs top research talent from universities in Canada with their counterparts in developing countries to address key development challenges.

These specialists share their advanced skills and knowledge to confront issues of common concern while mentoring a new generation of scholars and practitioners.

The results of this joint effort: world-class discoveries and healthier, wealthier, fairer societies.
