AIRS Midterm Report Submitted to SSHRC
The AIRS Midterm Report was prepared and submitted to SSHRC early in July. The Midterm Report summarizes the work done to date in the AIRS Project and provides a high level plan to project end, currently scheduled for March, 2016. The report will form the basis for a video-conference review by SSHRC at the 4th Annual AIRS Meeting in August, 2012. The midterm review is part of the SSHRC MCRI (Major Collaborative Research Initiative) process, and the SSHRC review committee will determine continuing funding based on the report and outcome of the review.
In addition to providing the required information for the SSHRC midterm review, this report is a valuable source of information for anyone interested in the work that has been done and the plans for continuation of the AIRS Project, and is available here for review.
