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).

Dumbing down the audience

‘Dumbing down’ the audience
Monday, July 05, 2010 2:50 PM by Enrique Mendizabal

Evidence-informed policies are central to ODI’s mission to link together high quality applied research with practical policy advice. That is why the Research and Policy in Development (RAPID) Programme works to understand better the relationship between research, policy and practice and to figure out how think tanks and other similar organisations can ensure strong links between them. To achieve this in developing countries we have worked from multiple angles. On the one hand, we are helping researchers to com­municate their research and engage with policy processes – an action we have further supported by interacting with donor agencies to im­prove the way they fund and support researchers. On the other hand, we have been working with progressive policy-makers in developing countries to improve their ability to bring evidence to bear in policy discussions.
