PRE-ANNOUNCEMENT (REMINDER): Team Grants
Under the Transitions in Care (TiC) multi-Institute strategic initiative, CIHR has designed a new funding opportunity to address improved health and wellness by transforming health systems for optimized outcomes for individuals experiencing transitions in care. The Team Grants are component 4 under the CIHR TiC multi-Institute initiative.
The TiC Team Grants will offer pragmatic solutions to problems associated with transitions in care from a clinical, health care or health system perspective. The funding opportunity will use a partnerships approach where multidisciplinary/interdisciplinary research teams will identify ways to develop, implement, evaluate and/or scale and spread evidence into practice to optimize transitions in care outcomes within two or more of the TiC primary focus areas.
The Team Grants will require partnership with the health system. In addition, projects integrating eHealth innovation will also require a health technology partner.
The total CIHR amount that will be available for this funding opportunity is $9.6M, enough to fund approximately ten (10) grants. This amount may increase if additional funding partners participate. Applicants will be required to secure, by the application deadline, partnership contributions equivalent to a minimum of 30% of the total grant amount requested. Of that partnered amount, a minimum of half (i.e., 15%) of the amount must be a cash contribution.

Operating Grant: Evaluation of Interventions to Address the Opioid Crisis
The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) has recently launched a funding opportunity for new opioid-related intervention evaluations.
The Operating Grant: Evaluation of Interventions to Address the Opioid Crisis will provide rapid information on the effectiveness of interventions and practices put in place to address the most urgent elements of the opioid crisis. The interventions and practices must be relevant to one or more pillars of the Canadian Drugs and Substances Strategy (CDSS) (i.e. prevention, treatment, harm reduction and enforcement).
To facilitate the linkage between knowledge users and researchers, CIHR has established a tool whereby knowledge users and researchers may signal their interest in this opportunity. Note that the use of the tool is not required for participation in this funding opportunity. If you would like to use this tool, please complete the following short survey.
CIHR will also be hosting a webinar on Wednesday, August 15, 2018 from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM EDT. The webinar will focus on a review of the funding opportunity and questions from participants. Register for the webinar.
