CIHR is holding a series of webinars on the 2015 Foundation “live pilot” competition Stage 1 application in August 2015. These webinars focus on the application process and the content that should be included in each section of the application. They are intended for both applicants and research administrators.

French and English webinars will be available as per the dates listed below. To register, click the link of the online session you wish to register for. Please note that upon registering, you will receive an email confirming your registration which will include all information required to join the webinar, including a direct link to the session and session password.

In advance of the webinar, please ensure that:

  1. You have access to a computer with speakers. It is essential that you have access to speakers in order to hear the presenters. A chat application will be made available to all attendees during the session, allowing you to provide written input and/or questions. 
  2. Java is installed on your computer, as this software is required to run WebEx. 

Use the Cisco WebEx web site to test your computer for the minimum requirements (browser) in advance of the webinar.

If you experience technical difficulties with the WebEx technology, please view this short tutorial on You Tube that has been developed to help you troubleshoot issues you may have encountered.
