The Canadian Common CV (CCV) allows researchers to enter their CV data once and output it in formats suitable for submission to CCV Network member organizations. The CCV Network is a partnership of federal, provincial and non-governmental research granting agencies. SSHRC presently uses the CCV for the Insight Development grant competitions and has plans to eventually move all programs to use of the CCV.
