2013 Knowledge Synthesis Grants
On November 1, 2013, the Network announced seven awards funding projects under the CFN Knowledge Synthesis Grants Program 2013. Click here for a summary listing of the projects, primary investigators and host institutions (en français), or scroll down to view each individual project.
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.
