KT Supplement Funding Opportunity – CIHR

A core component of CIHR‘s mandate is to translate knowledge into improved health, more effective health services and products, and a strengthened health care system. The Knowledge Translation (KT) Branch, through its KT Supplement Funding Opportunity, provides supplemental funding to enable widespread dissemination and implementation of research findings to communities beyond the traditional scientific community so as to accelerate the capture of the benefits of health research. The funding opportunity requires the use of active KT strategies and interventions supplementary to publication in peer reviewed journals. It is not intended to cover typical KT costs budgeted for at the time of submission of the original grant (eg. publication costs and open access fees for anticipated publications, conference fees, etc).
