CIHR Foundation Live Pilot 

The CIHR Foundation Scheme: 2014 First Live Pilot funding opportunity has been posted sven months in advance of the competition's registration deadline to provide the research community with program details and the opportunity to prepare for the competition. It is important to note, however, that updates may be made based on results from on-going pilots.
Please find attached (.xls) the University’s listing as deemed by CIHR based on current open suite award holders’ end-date. The column ‘eligibility pilot’ indicates which pilot test each applicant is eligible to apply to. RDS would like to remind all that this listing is not exhaustive - in addition to those found within the excel file, any investigator is currently eligible to apply to both Foundation live pilot competitions provided:

Please note, researchers who have only held CIHR strategic research program funding would still be considered eligible under this rubric, as would researchers only funded by other agencies.

In order to profile the applicant pool and prepare for peer review, the Fall 2014 Foundation Scheme competition includes an early registration deadline. Given the scope and scale of the proposed changes, and the intention to learn from the results of pilots such as this one, please be advised that CIHR may require corrections and adjustments to timelines along the way.

Please contact with any questions.

CIHR Open Operating Grant Program

The CIHR Open Operating Grant Program (OOGP) provides operating funds to support research proposals in all areas of health research including randomized controlled trials.

The OOGP is the largest of the open calls for proposals within CIHR's programming.  CIHR recognizes that the creativity, skill and insight of individuals and self-assembled teams lie at the heart of the research enterprise.  The pursuit of excellence in research, as evaluated through the peer review process, inspires ideas that drive progress and ensures a continuous flow of fresh insights.  Through the OOGP, CIHR aims to fund the best ideas in Canadian health research today.
