Fonds consists of records documenting Wolfe and Gertler’s research collaborations through several initiatives including POIS (Project on Ontario’s Innovation System), PROGRIS (Program on Globalization and Regional Innovation Systems), the ISRN (Innovation Systems Research Network), and ONRIS (Ontario Network on the Regional Innovation System). There is also documentation of the ISRN’s receipt of two SSHRC MCRI (Major Collaborative Research Initiatives) grants. The ISRN was a network of researchers examining innovation in various cities and regions across Canada. The ISRN was launched in 1998 and received MCRI grants in 2001 and 2006. ONRIS was one of the five subnetworks of the ISRN, was hosted by PROGRIS at the Munk School of Global Affairs, and served as the ISRN’s National Secretariat.
Records include conference and meeting files, research papers, grant applications, reports, and budgets. Digital files further document these research initiatives and the administration of the grants. Included are website backups from 2002, 2005 and 2007, and web archive from 2021.
