2018 Tri-Agency Collaborative Health Research Projects initiative (CHRP)

Fri. May. 4, 2018

Phase 1: LOI Deadline – May 29, 2018

Phase 2: Full Application – October 30, 2018 (internal to Jennifer Cleary - – October 9th)

The CHRP Initiative funding supports innovative interdisciplinary research projects involving collaborations between the natural sciences or engineering community together with the health sciences community, with a strong focus on knowledge translation (KT) and training leading to health and economic benefits for Canadians, more effective health services and products, and/or a strengthened health care system will be considered relevant to the overall funding opportunity.

In addition, a special call: Artificial Intelligence (AI): Health and Society is being supported by CIHR, NSERC and SSHRC within this funding opportunity. A portion of the total available funds for this year’s funding opportunity will be devoted to supporting projects relevant to this special call. Successful projects from this call will bring together researchers from natural sciences and engineering; health sciences; social sciences and humanities to collaborate on innovative artificial intelligence research applied to health and to investigate ethical, legal, and/or societal impacts associated with the development, scale, and spread of AI in the health sector, as related to the project proposed.
