1) Launch of the Healthy Cities Research Training Platform

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 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.

2) Psychology Mental Health Day

Psychology Mental Health Day is for raising awareness on mental health issues and promoting well-being. Our goal is to bridge the gap between education and service. Please join us on Thursday, October 10th, 2019, in the Richcraft Hall Conference Rooms, for a one-day conference on the latest research on mental health and well-being. Some of the topics include; addiction, autism, mental health and the workplace, and using the natural environment to promote well-being. Our keynote address will be on the treatment for anxiety. The event is free and all are welcome to attend. For more information, click here.
