CIHR's mandate is to excel, according to internationally accepted standards of scientific excellence, in the creation of new knowledge and its translation into improved health for Canadians, more effective health services and products and a strengthened Canadian health care system. The purpose of this funding opportunity is to support teams of researchers and knowledge users to produce knowledge syntheses and scoping reviews that will contribute to the use of synthesized evidence in decision-making and practice. Applications to synthesize knowledge in any of CIHR's four themes - biomedical; clinical; health services and policy; population and public health - are eligible provided that they respond to a knowledge user identified need. This funding opportunity will support two types of projects: knowledge syntheses and scoping reviews.

In this competition, funds are available to encourage and support applications in specific areas that are aligned with CIHR's research priority areas and mandates. Information on the research areas to be funded as well as the maximum amounts per grant that can be requested is found in the "Objectives" section.
