Notice of Upcoming CIHR COVID-19 Research Funding Opportunities
CIHR would like to provide information to the research community on two upcoming funding opportunities, as part of Government of Canada’s continued response to address the health challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. In early June 2021, we will launch two competitions that will focus on priority research areas:
- COVID-19 Vaccine Confidence
- Understanding and mitigating the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on children, youth and families in Canada.
These include informing effective strategies to improve COVID-19 vaccine confidence and uptake in populations experiencing conditions of marginalization, and understanding and mitigating the impacts of the pandemic on children, youth and families in Canada.
Detailed information on these two competitions can be found on the CIHR website here. The first competition is expected to be launched the week of May 31 with the second released the week of June 7. Total funding for these two competitions will be $4.6 million.
