The CIHR Open Operating Grant Program (OOGP) provides operating funds to support research proposals in all areas of health research including randomized controlled trials.
The OOGP is the largest of the open calls for proposals within CIHR's programming. CIHR recognizes that the creativity, skill and insight of individuals and self-assembled teams lie at the heart of the research enterprise. The pursuit of excellence in research, as evaluated through the peer review process, inspires ideas that drive progress and ensures a continuous flow of fresh insights. Through the OOGP, CIHR aims to fund the best ideas in Canadian health research today.
