Foundation Grant live pilots
The launch of the Foundation Grant "live pilots" is the first major step in the implementation of the CIHR Reforms of the Open Suite of Programs and peer review process.
The Foundation Grant is designed to contribute to a sustainable foundation of new, mid-career, and established health research leaders, by providing long-term support for the pursuit of innovative, high-impact research programs.
Researchers are invited to familiarize themselves with the suite of supporting materials available for applicants, research administrators and peer reviewers on the Foundation Grant "live pilots". A series of Questions and answers are also available.
