The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) Project Grant program 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, by supporting 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 Grant program is open to applicants in all areas of health research that are aligned with the CIHR mandate: “To excel, according to internationally accepted standards of scientific excellence, in the creation of new knowledge and its translation into improved health for Canadians, more effective health services and products, and a strengthened Canadian health care system”. The onus is on the applicant to clearly demonstrate the alignment of the application with CIHR’s mandate.
If you are applying for the CIHR Spring 2018 Project Grant please note that the registration deadline is Tuesday, February 6, 2018 and the CIHR application deadline is Tuesday, March 6, 2018.
