Subject Areas:

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.

Under the umbrella of NEURON, a joint transnational call (JTC-2016) has been launched together with the European Commission using the ERA-NET Cofund mechanism in the field of `External Insults to the Nervous System?. The call will be conducted simultaneously by the funding organizations in their respective countries and co-ordinated centrally by the Joint Call Secretariat. For more information please consult the Era-Net Neuron Website.

Application Details:

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.

Although applications must be submitted jointly by groups from several countries, the individual research groups will be funded by the individual NEURON funding organization(s) of their respective countries. Eligibility criteria are the matter of individual partner funding organizations. In the context of the ERA-NET Cofund mechanism, additional/new criteria may apply. For teams invited to submit a Full Proposal, CIHR, ONF and FRQS request that one Canadian member from each team applying for funding from CIHR, ONF and/or FRQS also complete an abbreviated CIHR application and submit it using ResearchNet. The deadline for submission of this application is the same as the Full Proposal deadline to ERA-Net Neuron of June 30, 2016. The purpose of this additional application is to provide CIHR, ONF and/or FRQS with an Operating Budget Module for the project, with the amounts quoted in Canadian dollars, and a complete justification for funds requested. Please follow the instructions listed below to complete this component of the application process.


NOTE: All Letters of Intent and Full Applications must be processed through Research Development & Services for institutional approval. Requests for Institutional approvals should be received no less than 3 days prior to the posted Sponsor deadline. A ROLA Proposal (bearing applicant, Chair and Dean electronic approvals) is required for each submission.
