Funding Opportunity » Team Grant: Chronic Disease Risk and Intervention Strategies
The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) Institute of Circulatory and Respiratory Health (ICRH) – in partnership with the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada and the Lung Association – are pleased to announce the Team Grant: Chronic Disease Risk and Intervention Strategies funding opportunity in support of the creation or development of expert teams comprising investigators undertaking collaborative, team-based research in one or more of the research areas under the ICRH’s mandate (see website).
Additional details regarding this funding opportunity, scheduled to be launched in November 2010, are available in the attached document.
Funding Opportunity » Networks of Centres of Excellence Competition
The Networks of Centres of Excellence (NCE) Program invests in Canadian research and entrepreneurial talent to translate and apply knowledge to produce economic and social benefits for Canadians. The program plays an important role in mobilizing some of Canada's best research talent found in the Canadian academic community, and in engaging Canadian and international partners of the private, public, and non-profit sectors. Together, they expand the global knowledge frontier to generate and implement multifaceted solutions to complex Canadian issues, which increases the benefit of research and research training for the benefit of society.
New networks will be eligible to receive funding for up to two five-year terms for a total of ten years. Progress for each new network will be assessed annually, and may result in continued funding, conditional funding, or the phasing out of a network before the end of the award.
