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.

Transitional OOGP Biosketch Webinars

CIHR is holding a series of webinars to provide support to applicants and research administrators on the Transitional OOGP Biosketch and provide an opportunity to ask questions.

French and English webinars will be available from December 2014-February 2015 on the dates listed below. Click the link beside the online session 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).

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.

Test your computer for the minimum requirements (browser) in advance of the webinar.
