III Strategic Plan 2021-2025
For past five years, CIHR-III has made consistent efforts to fund infection and immunity research identified through its Strategic Plan 2013-2018. With the completion of the 5-year plan that coincided with the appointment of the new Scientific Director, III is now launching a yearlong community and stakeholder engagement plan to identify the new strategic priorities for III. The Institute is planning to complete a new five-year (2021-2025) strategic plan by Fall 2020, which will align with the new overall CIHR Strategic Plan.
We believe strongly in the importance of engaging our community, and we are seeking your opinion and advice as we work towards the development of our priorities, aligned with the mandate of the institute, in the area of infection and immunity research. The input we receive through these engagements is invaluable in guiding our discussions and informing our decision-making process.
Below you will find an overview of the year-long strategic planning process. We will continue to post more information as we move through the process, including key dates and locations for engagement workshops. The III team looks forward to working collaboratively with you on this important undertaking.
