  2) European Commission - FP7 Call for Proposals  

We are pleased to share with you the most recent FP7 calls for proposals from the European Commission (http://www.era-can.ca/en/Calls_For_Proposals_41). The specific calls listed on the website have been identified as areas in which the Commission would particularly welcome Canadian participation. They include research in:

·         Energy

·         Environment (including Climate Change)

·         Health

·         Knowledge-Based Bio-Economy

·         Transport (including Aeronautics)

 

There are now almost 200 Canadians, from 25 universities as well as government and private sector organizations, in FP7 projects. It is a great way to leverage resources, strengthen networks, work internationally and bring Europeans to Canada: broadening the capacity and impact of our research. Canadian participation is generally pursued on a self-funded basis although opportunities for support are available where a Canadian contribution is deemed essential to a project’s success.

The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) invites scientists and administrators from medical schools, universities and research institutions to participate in an educational tour on medical research and graduate education in Germany. The dates are December 4th - December 10th, 2011.

 

The tour will provide an overview of cutting-edge research at German universities, hospitals, research institutions and companies, as well as of graduate education in medicine and related disciplines. Comprehensive information on funding opportunities for cooperation in education and research will also be provided.

 

Researchers and administrators attempting to initiate close cooperation with German colleagues, either in their specific research area or at an institutional level, are strongly encouraged to apply.

 

DAAD is responsible for the organization and implementation of the tour, and will be at your disposal during your stay and for follow-up. All program-related costs in Germany (accommodation, travel, most meals) will be borne by DAAD. Intercontinental travel is at the participants’ expense.

 

Deadline for applications is October 9th, 2011.

Supporting research towards improving the quality of life for people with hemophilia and other inherited bleeding disorders and finding a cure have been goals of the Canadian Hemophilia Society (CHS) since it was founded in 1953. Since 1989, through funds provided by the Hemophilia Research Million Dollar Club and the CHS, the Society has made available basic scientific research grants and studentships aimed at developing treatments for hemophilia and finding a cure.  

 

Dream of a Cure, the CHS Research Program and the 2012 Dream of a Cure Summer Studentships in Hemophilia Research Program application forms as well as the general criteria and conditions are available by accessing the CHS Web site at www.hemophilia.ca/en/research/chs-dream-of-a-cure-research-program. For Dream of a Cure, individual grants will be awarded to researchers for one to two years for amounts up to $75,000 per year while support will be offered to two interested Canadian medical or science students for up to 4 months for a maximum stipend of $6,000 per student.  

______________________________ 

 

In addition, application forms as well as the general criteria and conditions for the Hemostasis Fellowship Program, a Fellowship in Congenital and Acquired Bleeding Disorders, which is the result of a collaborative effort between CSL Behring, the CHS and the Association of Hemophilia Clinic Directors of Canada (AHCDC), are available by accessing the CHS Web site at www.hemophilia.ca/en/research/hemostasis-fellowship-program

The goal of this ongoing annual research program that encompasses a one-year fellowship appointment, valued at $75,000, is to provide fellows in hematology or other relevant fields the opportunity to acquire clinical or research skills necessary to improve care, treatment and quality of the lives of patients with hemophilia and other congenital or acquired bleeding disorders.

Are you a researcher with an interest in health research that will contribute to our understanding of how to optimize the financing and funding, sustainability, and governance and accountability of our healthcare systems? Then, this research funding initiative may be of interest to you and your colleagues. The Canadian Institutes of Health Research's new Evidence-Informed Healthcare Renewal (EIHR) initiative will support researchers and decision makers to advance the current state of knowledge, generate novel and creative solutions, and translate evidence for uptake into policy and practice to strengthen Canada's healthcare systems.

The EIHR initiative focuses on three priority areas: financing and funding models; health system sustainability; and governance and accountability. Innovation in these areas will require contributions from a wide range of disciplines and methodological approaches. Health services and health policy research would greatly benefit from contributions from economics, political science, sociology, philosophy, law, and other relevant fields, and from the involvement of policy makers, decision makers and healthcare providers.

The EIHR initiative has priority announcements on the following funding opportunities:  

· Advancing Theories and Methodological Innovations

· Partnerships for Health System Improvement

· Knowledge Synthesis

· Doctoral Research Awards

· Fellowship Awards

Please note that additional EIHR funding opportunities will be launched this fall, including Expedited Knowledge Synthesis and a new opportunity called Healthcare Renewal Policy Analysis.

 

To learn more about the EIHR initiative, including current and upcoming funding opportunities and priority research areas, contact Michael at Michael.Rajendram@cihr-irsc.gc.ca or Meghan at MMcMahon.ihspr@mcgill.ca.
