Support Program for Speakers from the CMDO Network

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 its support program for the invitation of guest speakers which are regular members of the CMDO Network for the year 2021 – 2022. This program aims to encourage any scientific event (congresses/symposiums) in Quebec province to invite as a lecturer or guest speaker researchers regular members of CMDO. Ultimately, the participation of CMDO members in various events aligned or not with the CMDO themes will increase the dissemination of CMDO research and expertise, increase the decompartmentalization of scientific themes and encourage the emergence of new multidisciplinary teams. As a result, any Quebec researcher may apply for financial support through this program, provided that the conference is conducted by a regular CMDO member and is linked to one of the areas of the CMDO Network: cardiometabolic health, diabetes and/or obesity. The number of awards will be determined based on the funding envelope for speaker support for each of the two annual competitions. The eligibility criteria and method of evaluation are described below. Funding of $ 500 or $ 750 per grant (up to 2 awards per event) will be awarded for events demonstrating excellent scientific quality, influence and structuring effect for research within the network.

Solicitations deadlines are:

1) February 10 of each year for scientific events taking place in the following months of April to October.

2) September 10 of each year for events taking place in the following months of November to March.

Applications submitted late, incomplete or do not meet the eligibility criteria will not be evaluated. Scientists who have received an event financial support (s) will be initiated in the period determined by the date of application to the competition.
