Knowledge Synthesis Grants

The specific objective of this funding opportunity is to support cross-jurisdictional teams of researchers and knowledge users to produce knowledge syntheses or scoping reviews relevant to the priorities of the pan-Canadian Primary and Integrated Health Care Innovations (PIHCI) Network that will contribute to the use of synthesized evidence in decision-making and practice across multiple jurisdictions.

Knowledge synthesis grants will be funded for 1 year, with a maximum budget of $50,000 ($25,000 from CIHR, $25,000 from matching, non-federal source[s]).  Applications are due July 26, 2016. Read the full details on the CIHR website.

If you are interested in applying to this funding opportunity we encourage you to contact BRIC NS as soon possible to discuss network support and requirements. Projects must involve at least one other provincial network; if you have not identified partners in other provinces we may be able to help. Teams intending to apply for the knowledge synthesis grant must submit a Letter of Intent to BRIC NS on or before June 21, 2016.
