Update: Extension to CIHR Application Deadlines

Mon. Jan. 18, 2016

IMPORTANT MESSAGE: Extension to application deadlines due to ongoing technical difficulties with the Canadian Common CV (CCV)

The CCV Secretariat continues to work with Shared Services Canada to resolve the Canadian Common CV (CCV) issue that all organizations subscribed to CCV are experiencing.

CIHR will extend the deadline for the submission of registrations/applications to January 25, 2016, for the following funding opportunities:

Please also note that:

  • The full application for the Project Scheme: 2016      1st Live Pilot will be available in ResearchNet the day after the      registration has closed.
  • At this time, the application deadline for the      Project Scheme: 2016 1st Live Pilot remains March 1, 2016. CIHR      recognizes that applicants will have less time to complete their      application in ResearchNet. However, this decision balances this risk with      the current competition timelines and the need to give reviewers the      required time to produce high-quality reviews.
  • Since applications to the Planning      and Dissemination Grants      competition do not require completion of a CCV, the deadline remains      January 20, 2016.
  • The Institutes      Advisory Boards recruitment campaign has been extended until February 10, 2016.     

CIHR may further extend the competition deadlines should the disruption to CCV service continue beyond today. CIHR will continue to monitor the situation and updates will follow as they become available.

CIHR apologizes for the inconvenience that this has caused and thank you for your continued patience.
