Funding Opportunities: 2014 Foundation Scheme "live pilot" competition and Transitional OOGP competition
To support the transition to the new Open Suite of Programs and peer review processes, a measured, multi-year approach is being implemented. A component of this approach includes the introduction of the Foundation Scheme through two "live pilot" competitions and the phasing out of the Open Operating Grant Program. We expect that this transition will take place between 2014 and 2016. However – as we have noted in other communications - course corrections and adjustments may be required along the way as we learn from the results of the pilots; the community will be kept informed should change be made.
To support this transition, CIHR is publishing two key funding opportunities:
* Funding Opportunity: 2014 Foundation Scheme "live pilot" competition
* Funding Opportunity: Transitional OOGP competition
