Facilitated Online Sessions - Webinars

CIHR holds several webinars that allow us to share information, exchange ideas and discuss issues of importance with our stakeholders.

Upcoming Webinars

SPOR National Data Platform Webinars

The Canadian Institutes of Health Research, through Canada’s Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research (SPOR), is pleased to announce that the funding opportunity for the SPOR National Data Platform is now live.

The SPOR National Data Platform aims to support the planning, creation and implementation of a pan-Canadian organization that will address major barriers and inefficiencies in accessing or using multi-jurisdictional/national data for patient-oriented research that cannot be addressed by individual provincial and territorial SUPPORT Units. This National Data Platform will leverage unique Canadian assets enabling leadership in patient-oriented research in Canada.

CIHR will be hosting two information webinars in January 2018 to provide prospective applicants with an overview of the SPOR National Data Platform funding opportunity, including how to apply. The webinar will also feature a Q & A portion, providing applicants an opportunity to ask any questions they may have.
