Facilitated Online Sessions - Webinars

CIHR holds several short, web-based, facilitated online sessions (also called "webinars"), which include seminars, presentations, lectures, workshops and conferences that are transmitted over the web. These webinars are free and allow us to exchange ideas and discuss issues of importance with our stakeholders.

2014 Fondation Scheme Pilot Stage 1 Application

CIHR is holding a series of webinars on the 2014 Foundation "live pilot" competition Stage 1 application in July, August and September. These webinars are intended to serve as a tool to help instruct applicants and research administrators on how to complete a Stage 1 application, focusing on the content that should be included in each section of the application.

French and English webinars for applicants and research administrators will be available as per the dates listed below. Click on the date you wish to register for. Please note that upon registering, you will receive an email confirming your registration which will include all relevant session information required to join the webinar (i.e. direct link to the session and session password).


Research Administrators

In advance of the webinar, please ensure that:

  1. You have access to a computer with speakers (required) and a microphone (optional). It is essential that you have access to speakers in order to hear the presenters. While the microphone would allow you to provide verbal input or ask verbal questions, a chat application will also be made available to all attendees during the conference.

  2. Java is installed on your computer, as this software is required to run WebEx.

  3. Your computer has the minimum requirements (browser).

Finally, you may wish to consult the Stage 1 Application Requirements document in advance of the webinar so that you can ask for clarification on any questions you may have about the Stage 1 application.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact Roadmap: Roadmap-Plan.Strategique@irsc-cihr.gc.ca
