CIHR has developed several initiatives that offer funding opportunities related to identified priority areas. Each of these initiatives involves collaboration between the Institutes and a wide range of partner organizations, including:
- other federal and provincial government departments and agencies
- national and provincial funding organizations and relevant territorial departments
- health charities
- non-governmental organizations
Their purpose is to offer funding opportunities focusing on a specific research agenda. In the case of four key strategic priorities, CIHR's Governing Council has specifically endorsed a joint, cross-cutting effort involving all thirteen Institutes.
The initiatives help CIHR to allocate its resources to make the strongest possible impact on health and health care. The Institute of Neurosciences, Mental Health and Addiction (INMHA) is involved in for the following initiatives:
- COVID-19 and Mental Health (CMH) Initiative
- Research in Traumatic Brain Injury
- Canadian Research Initiative in Substance Misuse (CRISM)
- Canadian Epigenetics, Environment and Health Research Consortium (CEEHRC)
- CIHR Dementia Research Strategy
CIHR – INMHA has partnered with a multinational, collaborative effort conducting research into traumatic injuries to the central nervous system, including the brain and spinal cord. Five CIHR-funded projects have been selected to be included in this European Commission-led partnership.
