Bayer ADVANCE Canada Research Program

How to Apply: 

The Canadian Hemophilia Society (CHS) is proud to put out its call for applications for its new research program created in collaboration with Bayer and ADVANCE Canada.

The Canadian Hemophilia Society – Bayer ADVANCE Canada Research Program was created to engage Canadian hemophilia treaters in activities to identify and research key issues in the ageing hemophilia population.

The research program will support studies that aim to:

•             Identify and provide insight into key issues associated with the ageing hemophilia population

•             Identify how management of age-related co-morbidities should be adapted to those with hemophilia

•             Create and deliver evidence-based information to health care practitioners (HCPs), the public and policy makers that will lead to improved care and QoL for older Canadians living with hemophilia

The primary intent of this program is to offer one or two $30,000 research grants, to a maximum of $60,000 for one year.

 

All completed application forms and support documents must arrive at the National Office of the Canadian Hemophilia Society on or before August 31, 2018. If the CHS receives the application after the deadline date but it is postmarked on or before the deadline date, then it is considered to have been submitted on time. The names of the successful applicants will be announced by October, 2018.

 

Additional information, the eligibility criteria and conditions for the research program as well as the application form can be found on our website at this link:

Second Call for Proposals for Innovation Networks

How to Apply: 

As outlined in Canada’s defence policy, Strong, Secure, Engaged, adapting and innovating quickly are crucial to developing and maintaining capabilities that address the challenges presented by today’s evolving global defence and security environment. To this end, innovation, knowledge, and problem solving are essential for Canada and its allies to mitigate threats and meet evolving defence and security needs.

In that context, the Innovation for Defence Excellence and Security (IDEaS) program will foster creativity and ingenuity in Canada by enabling the creation of networks of experts, providing support and opportunities to innovators, and by facilitating the integration and adoption of new capabilities for the defence and security communities.

Multi-institutional, multi-disciplinary teams, termed Micro-nets, are invited to submit research proposals on the following Innovation Challenge area from the defence and security community:

·        Autonomous Systems: Trust and Barriers to Adoption

 

The IDEaS Second Call for Proposals for Innovation Networks will provide non-repayable contribution funding to seed and sustain Micro-nets of at least five investigators from a minimum of three separate institutions or organizations from the academic, non-federal government, public and/or private sectors. A Canadian university must administer the contribution funds. Full details are available in the Innovation Networks Application Guide.

Micro-nets must propose interdisciplinary research programs aligned with the Innovation Challenge.

Funding will be provided by the IDEaS Transfer Payment Program, a federal government contribution program administered by the Department of National Defence.

The total budget for this call is $9,000,000.

Each Micro-net can request up to $1,500,000 over three years.

Co-funding is not mandatory, however participants from for-profit organizations will be required to contribute up to 50% of their costs.

Important dates:

Online portal for submission of Letters of Intent: opens July 16th, 2018.

Deadline for submission of Letters of Intent: August 31st , 2018, 12:00 pm (noon) EDT.
