Professor awarded Special Initiative SSHRC grant

Professor Martin Olszynski has been awarded a SSHRC COVID-19 Special Initiative Partnership Engage Grant.

Smart Prosperity Institute’s Colleen Kaiser, Geoff McCarney and UCalgary Law’s Martin Olszynski were recently awarded a $25,000 SSHRC 2020-21 Partnership Engage COVID-19 Special Initiative Grant for their proposal on “Agile Regulation for Post-COVID-19 Clean Innovation, Recovery and Growth in Canada.” The goals of this research are to identify, examine, assess, and learn from recent Canadian experience with "agile regulation" - regulation that is stringent but also flexible and predictable. In doing so, the project will inform regulatory approaches that will foster clean innovation and economic growth in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic, while maintaining stringency of regulatory processes.
