Initiation Grant funds will be used as seed funding to undertake two international workshops that will lead to development of the International Collaboration for the Critical Analysis of Neoliberalism (ICCAN).  ICCAN is designed to provide a strong and supportive international research environment for all participants to develop global networks for research and teaching.  Such networks will include opportunities to participate in international research projects funded from countries both within and beyond the European Union.  It is envisioned that ICCAN will eventually provide opportunities for international workshops and training for postgraduate researchers and undergraduate students alike, to better understand neoliberalism and neoliberalization processes as objects of research, as well as to improve their own understanding of research methodologies used to understand actually-existing forms of neoliberalism in specific places.  The initial application to STINT for Initiation Grant funding will be augmented by a second application to the Canadian Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) ‘connections grant’ fund.  This SSHRC funding requires 50% matching funds, which is why the STINT Initiation Grant is so important as the seed funding for the project.  If ICCAN members are successful in obtaining STINT and SSHRC funding, we will build the larger network and apply for SSHRC Partnership Development Grant funding (up to CAD$200,000.00/SEK1.37million) and then a full SSHRC Partnership Grant (up to CAD$2.5million / SEK17million).     It is envisioned that ICCAN will position members to respond quickly to funding calls from various sources in the 14 nation states that membership will be drawn from.  So, for example, these applications will be linked also to further funding applications to the Swedish Research Council, Riksbankens Jubileumsfond, the Academy of Finland, and the European Union research funding programs (to name just a few EU sources).  Eventually, ICCAN members would also make applications for research funding from non-EU sources such as the US National Science Foundation, the Australian Research Council, and so on.  At the start of the project, all of the participants will be senior researchers, at least five years beyond the PhD degree.  Eventually, however, we plan for ICCAN to become a major source of research mentoring and access to research funding expertise for pre-doctoral researchers and early-career post-doctoral researchers among all the partner institutions
