The implementation of CIHR’s new Open Suite of Programs and peer review processes includes a transition plan to gradually phase-out existing Open Knowledge Translation programs while phasing-in the two new funding schemes, the Project Scheme and Foundation Scheme. Therefore, the final launches of these programs will be on June 24th, 2015, as per the competitions below:
- Partnerships for Health System Improvement: 2015-2016
- Operating Grant – Knowledge to Action: 2015-2016
- Knowledge Synthesis Grant: Fall 2015
- Proof of Principle – Phase I and II: Fall 2015
- Industry Partnered Collaborative Research: Fall 2015
Please refer to the specific Funding Opportunities for more details on the objectives and competition timelines.
Project Scheme – Partnered/Integrated Knowledge Translation (iKT) projects: Special consideration
One of the expectations of the Project Scheme is to support a diverse portfolio of health-related research and knowledge translation projects at any stage, from discovery to application, including commercialization. To support this expectation CIHR will establish a minimum threshold of funded knowledge translation and commercialization projects that include a partnered/iKT approach. More details can be found in Project Scheme: 2016 1st Live Pilot – Application Instructions.
