Technology and health care for the elderly medical research studies

Focus on strategic priorities that have significant social impact.

2014 (Fall) Strategic Impact Grant Program

Three projects were funded under the second call for the CFN Strategic Impact Grant Program. This Program was non-traditional and unique in that we were seeking researchers with potential projects that were interested in achieving greater impact by collaborating with other like-minded researchers with potential projects in similar areas and with interest in partnering with industry groups, knowledge users and trainees on a wider basis.
