CIHR-New Science Policy Fellowship Programs
CIHR's Knowledge Translation Branch Announces the Third Launch of the New Science Policy Fellowships Program
Here is your chance to learn about and have an impact in the policy world. Contribute to bringing evidence to inform health policy. Understand how evidence informed decision making works. We are offering fellowships for "embedded" researchers in the policy world.
This new and exciting Funding Opportunity was launched for the third time on April 4, 2012 with a new series of policy assignments. This program provides highly qualified candidates at the doctoral, post-doctoral, new investigator and mid-senior investigator stages of health research with the opportunity to learn more about current health policy activities and the science/policy interface.
The CIHR KT Branch has partnered with the CIHR Institute of Health Services and Policy Research in collaboration with the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies as well as with the Health Canada Strategic Policy Branch to help foster positive exchanges between health researchers and policy makers. The program aims to help bridge the gap between the worlds of science and policy making by providing funding for researchers to undertake fellowships at Health Canada and at the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies. Support will be provided through short-term policy assignments for highly qualified individuals who are engaged in health research to participate in and contribute to the policy making processes while learning first-hand about the intersection of science and policy.
Application deadline: June 4, 2012
