Call for projects - CMDO and RRISIQ Inter-network initiatives

This joint program between the CMDO and RRISIQ Networks aims to promote interactions between researchers from Quebec networks who carry out research on issues common to both partner networks. Proposed projects must be aligned with the networks’ mission and focus on the respective research themes of the concerned networks. This funding should be used for at least one of the following purposes:

  • Generate knowledge and data that can lead to a concrete clinical or health care application;
  • Obtain sufficient preliminary data to allow the team to submit funding requests to granting agencies;
  • Serve as leverage for larger grants from partners to conduct a long-term research program;
  • Allow Quebec researchers to establish their leadership at the national and international levels in the targeted research themes;
  • Allow, as much as possible, to have an activity or a product dedicated to knowledge transfer toward users or target populations.

One project corresponding to the research areas of the networks and tied to at least one of the above objectives will be funded based on excellence. This project must involve at least one regular member from each network (CMDO and RRISIQ) and from two different Quebec institutions. The project may involve more than two Quebec research centers, as well as other centers in Canada (e.g. with a member of Diabetes Action Canada) or internationally. Projects may come from any research axis: 1) pre-clinical; 2) clinical; 3) health system / care organisation, 4) training 5) population intervention and 6) sharing / use of knowledge. The eligibility criteria and the evaluation method are described below. One project of excellent scientific quality demonstrating a structuring effect for research within the two networks will be funded at the level of $ 20,000 for one year.

The deadline for submitting applications is November 21th, 2019, for funding beginning no later than March 1st, 2020.

Late, incomplete or submissions that do not meet the eligibility criteria will not be evaluated.

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).
