Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR)

Project Grant Fall 2017

Applicant eLearning Module available July 19th

Webinar series begins July 20th


The Project Grant is designed to capture ideas with the greatest potential for important advances in fundamental or applied health-related knowledge, the health care system, and/or health outcomes. It supports projects with a specific purpose and a defined endpoint. The best ideas may stem from new, incremental, innovative, and/or high-risk lines of inquiry or knowledge translation approaches.

 

The Project Scheme is expected to:

·       Support a diverse portfolio of health-related research and knowledge translation projects at any stage, from  discovery to application, including commercialization;

·       Contribute to the creation and use of health-related knowledge;

·       Promote relevant collaborations across disciplines, professions, and sectors.

 

eLearning Module and Webinar Series:

The Project Grant: Fall 2017 Applicant eLearning Module (available July 19th) is a visual tour of the application process that highlights key information such as the competition's application instructions, recent changes and adjudication criteria.

 

CIHR is holding a series of Question and Answer webinars on the Project Grant: Fall 2017 application starting on Thursday, July 20, 2017. They will provide participants with a brief overview of recent changes and an opportunity to ask questions.

 

CIHR's webinars will be conducted on the WebEx web conferencing platform. To register, click the link of the session you would like to attend. Upon registering, you will receive a confirmation email that will include all information required to join the session, including a direct link to the session and the session password.
