Changes to the CIHR Research Reporting System Report

(2015-04-23) CIHR would like to inform you of recent changes to the CIHR Research Reporting System (RRS) reports. The RRS is a tool that CIHR uses to collect vital information regarding the research outputs of grants funded by CIHR. Reporting on funded research enables CIHR to collate and evaluate information from multiple researchers, track the impacts of individual grants over a number of years, produce updates to show the impact of CIHR funding, and evaluate the effectiveness of its funding programs and strategies.

In response to feedback collected from the research community, CIHR has identified opportunities to streamline the RRS report in an effort to reduce burden on researchers while ensuring that the data captured aligns with CIHR’s reporting requirements. The new report has fewer questions and is a shorter report compared to the previous version.

As a result, all RRS reports (both currently open and new RRS reports) were updated on April 9th 2015. Please note that those grant holders who currently have an open RRS report have been contacted directly by CIHR to discuss the impacts of this change. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact info@cihr-irsc.gc.ca.
