2019 Knowledge Translation Grant Competition

December 11, 2018


On December 10th, CFN announced its second Knowledge Translation (KT) Competition. Designed to bridge the gap between evidence and practice, the 2019 CFN KT Competition is designed to bridge the gap between evidence and practice.  We are looking for scaleable projects that initiate or improve the implementation and/or adoption of evidence to improve the health and functioning of older adults living with frailty and/or their family/friend caregivers.

The 2019 KT competition is open to all interested investigators. Prior CFN funding is not required.

How to Apply: Projects will submit an Intent to Apply (IA) online by Monday, January 14, 2019 at 5 pm ET. The Intent to Apply will be adjudicated and top-rated projects will be invited to submit a full Application.

KT projects proposed must address one of two priority areas, and must have multidisciplinary, multi-institutional teams. Projects of 18 months in duration or less will be considered.

There is no maximum amount for a single KT proposal, but increasing budgetary requests will be expected to produce greater impact and will undergo scrutiny in evaluation as to their ability to achieve such impact.  All proposals require partners who have committed cash and/or eligible in-kind contributions from NCE-eligible partners on a 1:1 basis, at a minimum.

In New Brunswick, the competition is presented in collaboration with the New Brunswick Health Research Foundation (NBHRF),with funding available for projects where all funds are spent within New Brunswick, and the Principal Investigators receiving funding are from an institution in New Brunswick eligible to receive Tri-Council funding.

The Program Guidelines and Application Instructions contain full requirements. Please read these documents carefully before submitting your Intent to Apply.
