Speaker grant program for out of Quebec International meeting

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 quality of life for all Quebecers.

The network is launching Speaker grant program for out of Quebec International meeting for the year 2019 – 2020. The purpose of this program is to encourage CMDO researchers (regular members), doctoral students/postdoctoral trainees/residents under supervision by a regular member to participate, with an oral presentation, in international conferences outside Quebec province. It can be as a guest speaker or as a regular speaker. Ultimately, the participation of CMDO members in various international conferences aligned or not with the themes of the CMDO, will make it possible to broaden the dissemination of CMDO research and expertise, to accentuate the decompartmentalization of scientific themes and to promote the emergence of new international multidisciplinary teams. As a result, these CMDO member speakers may request financial support through this program, provided that the oral presentation is related to one of the CMDO Network’s areas of cardiometabolic health, diabetes and/or obesity. The number of grants will be determined according to the budget of the grants for speakers for each of the three annual competitions. The eligibility criteria and the evaluation method are described below. Selected speakers will be funded for $500 or $750.

Deadlines for applications are the following:

  • November 25th each year, for scientific events taking place next December to April.
  • March 25th each year, for scientific events taking place next April to August.
  • August 25th each year, for scientific events taking place next September to December.

Applications that are late, incomplete or that do not meet the eligibility criteria will not be evaluated. Scientific events for which the speaker participate will have to take place within the period specified for each competition.
