Updated Tuesday September 3 - LOI Internal Deadline has been added.

The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) are jointly funding a national Healthy Cities Research Training Platform (HCRTP) to develop an interdisciplinary, cross-sectoral training initiative that will generate cutting-edge knowledge and build capacity for implementation science and solutions-based research.

The application process for the HCRTP will consist of a Letter of Intent (LOI) stage, where up to six successful applicants will receive developmental grants, and a Full Application stage where one application will receive the full grant. The HCRTP is a major component of the CIHR Healthy Cities Research Initiative (HCRI).


In support of this funding opportunity, CIHR, NSERC and SSHRC will be holding a webinar to provide more information on the scope of the training platform and the application process.
