Opportunity

The Project Grant program is designed to capture ideas with the greatest potential for important advances in fundamental or applied health-related knowledge, health care, health systems, and/or health outcomes by supporting projects of research proposed and conducted by individual researchers or groups of researchers in all areas of health. 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 expected to:

  • Support a diverse portfolio of health-related research and knowledge translation proposals at any stage, from discovery to application, including commercialization;
  • Promote relevant collaborations across disciplines, professions, and sectors; and
  • Contribute to the creation and use of health-related knowledge.
