Webinar - CIHR Team Grant: Intersectoral Prevention Research

Monday July 27, 2015 2:30pm to 4:00pm


Featuring: Dr. Nancy Edwards, Scientific Director for the CIHR-Institute of Population and Public Health

The Intersectoral Prevention Research funding opportunity is a key component of the CIHR Environments and Health Signature Initiative focusing on research in three priority areas: agri-food production, resource development and urban form.

Intersectoral prevention research will examine and compare the social, cultural, health, health equity and economic impacts of intersectoral strategies (e.g. policies, programs, regulations, etc. implemented within or outside the health sector) have an impact on health and health equity.

Through this funding opportunity, CIHR will support co-led interdisciplinary and intersectoral teams that will work across sectors and jurisdictions to tackle real world problems together with partners. Information about partners can be found here

In particular, funding is available for two teams with a primary focus on: Indigenous Ways of Knowing (IWK)/Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK)/Two-Eyed Seeing (TES). In order to be considered relevant for this funding, applicants must propose a research program that addresses IWK/TEK/TES approaches in any one of the three nexus areas. The application must include a First Nations, Inuit or Métis person evidencing IWK/TEK/TES and reflect this in their program of research.
