Operating Grant : SPOR PIHCI Network: Programmatic Grants

The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) have announced an exciting funding opportunity for BRIC NS and other Primary and Integrated Health Care Innovations networks across the country.

The Operating Grant: SPOR PIHCI Network: Programmatic Grants are available for projects of up to 4 years, must include 4 participating provinces, and have a maximum of $1 million available from CIHR in total per funded project (with 1:1 matching funds required).

This competition includes an internal Network-level LOI. The purpose of this LOI process is to formally identify to the PIHCI Networks  the projects that intend to apply to the CIHR opportunity so that we can ensure relevance to provincial priorities, facilitate any other cross-provincial collaborations required, and provide adequate support to obtaining letters of support etc.

Application timeline:

  • NEW DEADLINE September 6: Network LOI due
  • September 26: CIHR LOI due
  • November 28: CIHR application deadline

If you are interested in applying to this opportunity, please get in touch with BRIC NS as soon as possible for support with your application.
