CIHR ‑ Operating Grant : Network Environments for Indigenous Health Research

Posted by Danielle Andres on April 19, 2018 in Research Funding

The purpose of the Network Environments for Indigenous Health Research (NEIHR) is to build on previous efforts of the Network Environments for Aboriginal Health Research (NEAHR), initially launched in 2007, and the Indigenous Mentorship Network Program (IMNP), initially launched in December 2016, by establishing a solid foundation for Indigenous health research driven by, and grounded in, Indigenous (i.e., First Nations, Inuit and Metis) communities in Canada. While NEAHR was revolutionary for its time, NEIHR will take a broader and more sophisticated approach to Indigenous health research and capacity building not just by focusing on individuals (e.g., supporting trainees and researchers), but also by concentrating on Indigenous communities, and social structures (e.g., educational systems, institutions, research infrastructures, policy apparatus, etc.).

The focus of this funding opportunity (FO) is to support Development Grants to bring together Indigenous Peoples/Communities/Organizations and other members of the research team, including researchers, knowledge-users and/or partners, to undertake initial planning and proposal development in preparation of an anticipated future CIHR full NEIHR Network grant FO. Indigenous Elders and Knowledge Holders are encouraged to play a lead role on the research team (e.g., Nominated Principal Knowledge User, co-investigator, etc.).
