Project Grant live pilots
The Project Grant is designed to capture ideas with the greatest potential to advance health-related knowledge, health research, health care, health systems, and/or health outcomes. It supports projects with a specific purpose and a defined endpoint. The best ideas may stem from new, incremental, innovative, and/or high-risk lines of inquiry or knowledge translation approaches.
The supporting materials listed below have been developed to assist applicants, peer reviewers and research administrators in understanding the Project Grant. In addition, a complete list of Questions and Answers is available.
