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.
