The vision of the CCNA is to bring together the best of Canadian research in the field of neurodegenerative diseases affecting cognition -- supported by CIHR as well as by other partners -- in a collaborative and synergistic space to work on bold, innovative and transformative research that will ultimately impact the quality of life and the quality of services for those having to live with the effects of neurodegenerative diseases affecting cognition and their caregivers. The overarching goal of the CCNA is to bring together the relevant Canadian expertise in all aspects of neurodegenerative processes affecting cognition in aging in a collaborative manner to carry out an innovative and impactful research agenda.

A two-stage application process will be used for this funding opportunity: 1) Expression of Interest, and 2) Full Proposal. A series of webinars will be held in April 2013 to assist applicants in understanding the focus and the application process for the Canadian Consortium on Neurodegeneration in Aging. Please see sponsor website for full details.

Application Details:

The CCNA will be led by a Nominated Principal Applicant (NPA) who will be responsible for the oversight of the global CCNA research program, achieving the objectives of the CCNA, overseeing the governance and collaborative synergistic activities and ensuring the conditions to optimize the impact of research for the health of Canadians. Each of the three Themes will be led by a Theme Principal Applicant (Theme PA), who will be responsible for ensuring that the research program is carried out within each team and to provide opportunities for knowledge exchange and transfer within and across teams and the other themes. Theme PAs must report annually on their Theme's activities, in collaboration with the Nominated Principal Applicant. The Team Principal Applicant (Team PA) will receive the approved budget for research projects and will lead a specific multidisciplinary team within each Theme. Teams are strongly encouraged to be multidisciplinary, inter-institutional and include new investigators.

Applicants are expected to submit an EOI that describes the whole Consortium including components of training, ethics, legal, and social implications, and knowledge translation, shared resources, governance, as well as the teams planned within each Theme of the Consortium. Your EOI must be submitted using ResearchNet.
