CIHR Project Grant Workshop

June 25, 2019 — June 25, 2019
Time: 9:00 AM — 12:00 PM

Location:201 Paterson Hall

Greetings CIHR researchers,

We are pleased to invite faculty members to the CIHR Project Grant Workshop. The Project Grant is designed to capture ideas with the greatest potential to advance health-related knowledge, health research, health care, health systems, 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 workshop will take place on Tuesday, June 25, 2019 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the Paterson Hall room 201, and will include the following sessions that will engage several CIHR Project Grant panellists:

  1. Project Grant Program Overview
  2. Insights Into the Evaluation Process
  3. Project Grant Application (New and Re-submission)
  4. Pitch Your Project Grant Idea (**see below for more details)

Researchers planning to apply in fall 2019 or spring 2020 are strongly encouraged to attend.

If you are interested in attending, please RSVP to by June 20, 2019. Light refreshments will be provided.
