Award: CIHR Gender-Net Plus Grants for Transnational Collaboration
Gender-Net Plus is offering funding for research integrating a gender dimension in addressing urgent societal challenges. The CIHR Institute of Gender and Health is a member of this international consortium and will make funding available to support Canadian researchers interested in investigating sex and gender in health through transnational collaborations. The maximum amount available is $100,000 CAD per year for up to three (3) years for a total of $300,000 CAD, per grant.
Gender-Net Plus has chosen to take the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a point of departure for this call. While the full call references several SDGs, the CIHR* will only support applications that respond to SDG 3 (Good Health and Well-being, topics 1.2 and 1.3 only).
The rules for this Joint Call require that each applicant team include investigators from at least three consortium countries. For Canadian investigators, this means you must establish partnerships with researchers from at least two other consortium partner countries (excluding Canada).
To find out more about eligibility conditions for this funding and to see a full list of international partner organizations, please visit the CIHR website. There will also be an informational webinar where you can learn more about this opportunity.
