Training Grant : CIHR-NSERC-SSHRC Healthy Cities Research Training Platform (HCRTP)

The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) are jointly funding a national Healthy Cities Research Training Platform (HCRTP) to develop an interdisciplinary, cross-sectoral training initiative that will generate cutting-edge knowledge and build capacity for implementation science and solutions-based research.

This funding opportunity will support a team in designing and delivering a national research training initiative focused on how to create, implement, and scale innovative, solution-based interventions in a variety of urban contexts focused on promoting healthy, resilient, sustainable and equitable cities. Accomplishing this goal will require experts from diverse disciplines including public health, epidemiology, economics, sociology, law, ethics, engineering, environmental science and urban planning, which is why partnership across the three research funding agencies is essential.

The application process for the HCRTP will consist of a Letter of Intent (LOI) stage, where up to six successful applicants will receive developmental grants, and a Full Application stage where one application will receive the full grant. The HCRTP is a major component of the CIHR Healthy Cities Research Initiative (HCRI).

 

Eligibility

  1. The application must be submitted by a team, one being identified as the Nominated Principal Applicant, the remaining identified as Principal Applicants (as detailed below).
  2. The Nominated Principal Applicant (NPA) must be either an independent researcher or organization with a research or knowledge translation mandate.

Please see detailed eligibility requirement.
