Call for projects - 2022-2023 Initiatives involving research platform

Created in April 2012 by the Fonds de Recherche du Québec – Santé (FRQS), the Research Network on Cardiometabolic Health, Diabetes and Obesity aims to develop research excellence in these areas, to transfer knowledge and to foster the use of new knowledge so as to promote the quality of life of Quebec province population.

The network is launching a competition to fund Quebec research platforms through intercentre collaborative projects for the year 2022 – 2023. This competition invites researchers who are regular members of the network to propose collaborative projects in the fields of cardiometabolic health, diabetes and obesity in which a research platform is essential for the success of the project. One (1) project from the proposals received will be funded according to the usual criteria of excellence. These projects must involve at least two Quebec research centers and may also involve additional centers in Quebec, Canada (e.g. a member of Action Diabetes Canada) or internationally. The eligibility criteria and evaluation process are described in the guide. Projects of excellent scientific quality that demonstrate a structuring effect for research within the network will be funded at a rate of $10,000 for one year. This amount will be paid directly to the platform involved in the project.

The application deadline is December 1, 2021, for funding beginning no later than April 1, 2022.

Applications submitted late, incomplete or that do not meet the eligibility criteria will not be evaluated. Funding recipients will be required to make a presentation of their findings at the joint annual meeting of the CMDO Network and the Société québécoise de lipidologie, nutrition et métabolisme (SQLNM), following the completion of the project.

It is always important to take the rules and criteria before completing the Form (Open PDF file (top of page) to see the details in the questionnaire).
