CIHR International Opportunities program
CIHR is offering two different, one-time funding grants
to researchers in different stages of an international collaboration
that aligns with a funding priority of CIHR or one of the
CIHR institutes. One-year $25,000 planning and development
grants are available to assist Canadian researchers to develop
and establish new international collaborations. One-year
$100,000 collaborative research project grants are available
to defray the direct costs of research undertaken by Canadian
health researchers as members of international research
teams. The CIHR application in this case must form part
of an application submitted to an international research
project being funded by a foreign funder, such as the EU
Sixth Framework Program. Applications for planning and development
grants may be submitted anytime until Feb. 28, 2004, and
for collaborative research grants, applications may be submitted
anytime until Jan. 31, 2004. A two-week advance registration
notice is required for each program. For further details,
