2013 Knowledge Synthesis Grants

On November 1, 2013, the Network announced seven awards funding projects under the CFN Knowledge Synthesis Grants Program 2013. 

The awards provide funding for 36 investigators (including 8 new Network Investigators and 3 new Network institutions), along with numerous partners and trainees. They represent a wide range of disciplines and institutions, and have partnered with a broad group of co-investigators and knowledge users.

Knowledge Synthesis Grants support teams of researchers and knowledge users in producing reviews that contribute to the use of synthesized evidence in decision-making and practice. The work will guide future research priorities and support the development of reports and Network knowledge translation activities.
