Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) Operating Grant: Collaborative Health Research Projects (CHRP) (NSERC Partnered)

The objective of the CHRP Initiative is to support interdisciplinary, collaborative research projects requiring participation from the natural sciences or engineering community, together with the health sciences community. Proposed research projects must be innovative with a strong focus on knowledge translation and lead to 1) health and economic benefits for Canadians, 2) more effective health services and products, and/or 3) a strengthened health care system. 

 

All applicant teams must:
.  include at least one science or engineering researcher, and at least one health sciences researcher;
.  include trainees (the number should be commensurate with the size of the project); and
.  engage and collaborate with a knowledge/technology user organization that could benefit from the research results.

Special Call, Artificial intelligence (AI): Health and Society (supported by CIHR, NSERC and SSHRC)
Successful projects will bring together researchers from natural sciences and engineering, health sciences, social sciences and humanities to 1) collaborate on innovative AI research applied to health, 2) investigate ethical, legal and/or societal impacts associated with the development, scale and spread of AI in the health sector. 

 

Part of this special call may support applications that are, in addition to the above, relevant to the following areas identified by CIHR institutes:

.  To be considered relevant for CIHR-Institute of Aging (CIHR-IA) funding, applications must align with its mandate.
.  To be considered relevant for CIHR-Institute of Cancer Research (CIHR-ICR) funding, applications must employ AI using medical and non-medical data sets to improve cancer diagnosis and treatment.
.  To be considered relevant for CIHR-Institute of Human Development, Child and Youth Health (CIHR-IHDCYH) funding, applications must align with its mandate. Teams are encouraged to include at least one Early Career Investigator as an applicant.
.  To be considered relevant for CIHR-Institute of Neurosciences, Mental Health and Addiction (CIHR-INMHA) funding, applications must align with its mandate.
.  To be considered relevant for CIHR-Institute of Nutrition, Metabolism and Diabetes (CIHR-INMD) funding, applications must be specifically in the areas of diabetes, gastroenterology, chronic liver and kidney disease.
.  To be considered relevant for CIHR-Institute of Population & Public Health (CIHR-IPPH) funding, applications must develop or apply AI approaches to answer population and public health issues that are aligned with the mandate of the Institute.
