Upcoming funding opportunity: Health Research Training Platform Pilot

CIHR's Strategic Action Plan on Training presents a vision to support the development of scientific, professional, and organizational leaders within and beyond the health research enterprise. It recognizes the need to support the development of Research Leaders of Tomorrow by equipping trainees and early career researchers (ECRs) with the experiences and skills needed to lead high-impact, interdisciplinary health research careers in a rapidly evolving research landscape.

With the Health Research Training Platform Pilot, CIHR plans to support the development of integrated training and mentoring environments that will position health research trainees and ECRs for career success. This is a “pilot”, as CIHR plans to take lessons learned from the development and implementation of this funding tool into consideration for future capacity development program enhancements.

The total amount available for this pilot is $28,800,000 over six years, enough to fund approximately 12 platforms in specific funding areas (approximately $400,000 per platform per year). This amount is subject to change due to the addition of partners and/or availability of funds.
