Planning Award for Patient-Oriented Research and Knowledge Translation

The Planning Award will support teams in partnering with patients and other stakeholders to plan research studies or knowledge translation (KT) projects (knowledge dissemination or implementation) in the Fraser region. Note: operating expenses of research or KT projects are not eligible, only planning and engagement activities are eligible.  

The award is funded and managed by the BC SUPPORT Unit Fraser Centre, a part of the CIHR Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research (SPOR). The Centre is a partnership between Fraser Health and Simon Fraser University. Two awards of $10,000 each will be awarded (total $20,000) for a period of 9 months. Applicants cannot have already received funding for the proposed activity.
