The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) are jointly funding a national Healthy Cities Research Training Platform (HCRTP) to develop an interdisciplinary, cross-sectoral training initiative that will generate cutting-edge knowledge and build capacity for implementation science and solutions-based research.
This funding opportunity will support a team in designing and delivering a national research training initiative focused on how to create, implement, and scale innovative, solution-based interventions in a variety of urban contexts focused on promoting healthy, resilient, sustainable and equitable cities. Accomplishing this goal will require experts from diverse disciplines including public health, epidemiology, economics, sociology, law, ethics, engineering, environmental science and urban planning, which is why partnership across the three research funding agencies is essential.
The total amount available for this funding opportunity is $5,100,000. This amount may increase if additional funding partners participate. Of this amount:
- $150,000 is available to fund six developmental grants of up to $25,000 at the LOI stage.
- $4,950,000 is available for the Full Application which is enough to fund one grant. The maximum amount for the grant is $825,000 per year for up to six years.
The application process for the HCRTP will consist of two steps:
- A Letter of Intent (LOI) stage, where up to six successful applicants will receive developmental grants; and
- A Full Application stage where one partnership will receive the full grant.
