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.

This funding opportunity is part of the eighth call for applications of the Global Alliance for Chronic Diseases (GACD). Established in 2009, the GACD is an alliance of 12 of the largest public funders of health research from around the world. The mission of the GACD is to reduce the burden of chronic non-communicable diseases (NCDs) in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), and populations facing conditions of vulnerability in high-income countries (HICs), by building evidence to inform national and international NCD policies. The CIHR and IDRC funding opportunity launched under this GACD program will support projects that are examining how to implement one or more evidence-based interventions known to prevent or reduce exposure to NCD risk factor(s) associated with city environments across the three themes presented in the GACD call.

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.This is Step 2 of the application process: Full Application to GACD (submitted through the Common Submission Portal for GACD Applications). The ROLA proposal is to CIHR for the portion of funds to come from CIHR to Western.
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.
