The Peter Wall Institute was established at UBC to stimulate collaborative, creative, innovative interdisciplinary research and provide UBC scholars with opportunities to exchange ideas with national and international scholars.
The institute funds an International Research Roundtable Program to bring together scholars from UBC, Canada and the international community to provide scholars, community leaders, artists, policy makers and others the opportunity to explore a theme, create the foundation for innovative research, prompt important advances in science and society, and/or have a significant impact on the discovery of solutions to important problems.
Through the International Visiting Research Scholar Program, the Peter Wall Institute also offers awards of $10,000 to bring some of the world’s best researchers to UBC. This initiative allows the Institute to partner with UBC faculties, departments and research centres to attract outstanding scholars to work collaboratively with UBC faculty members on innovative research.
