In general, team grants support expert teams of talented and experienced researchers carrying out high-quality research on important health issues best addressed through a collaborative, multidisciplinary approach. These teams provide superior research training and mentorship environments, and support the production of new knowledge and the translation of research findings into improved health and health care.

Developmental grants of up to $10,000 may be offered, if requested, to successful applications at the Letter of Intent stage. Applicants must request development funds in their Letters of Intent. Submit a one page outline of the activities for which the development funds will be used plus a one-page budget description. we will consider applications concerned with a range of types of violence, including but not limited to self-directed, interpersonal, and collective violence, and their intersections and multi-dimensional impacts. This funding opportunity builds on the outcomes of a national Roundtable on Violence, Gender, and Health hosted by the Institute of Gender and Health (IGH) and its partners in January 2010. The recommendations from this roundtable informed the development of this strategic initiative. A report on the roundtable is available for download from the IGH website. IGH is particularly interested in supporting teams that move beyond descriptive research into the development of programs and interventions.

Application Details:

The application process is comprised of two stages: Letter of Intent and Full Application. CIHR Team Grant proposals will be evaluated as a single, integrated entity. While each research component included in the application must be meritorious, it is critical to demonstrate that the CIHR Team Grant brings added value, in terms of the approach to improving the health of Canadians or strengthening the Canadian health care system.

Once review of LOIs is completed, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full application. The names of teams invited to apply and the topic of their research will be published on the CIHR website. To complete your Letter of Intent and Application, follow the instructions identified in the Team Grants / Emerging Team Grants - ResearchNet "Letter of Intent" Phase Instructions and the Team Grants / Emerging Team Grants - ResearchNet "Application" Phase Instructions. Your Application will be submitted using ResearchNet. Scan and upload the signed signature pages including the routing slip in the Print/Upload Signature Pages task in ResearchNet prior to submitting your application.


NOTE: Letters of Intent and Full Applications are to be processed through Research Development Services for institutional signatures, and are to be accompanied by a completed RDAF form (bearing applicant, Chair and Dean signatures).
