Fall 2020 Project Competition Feedback Processes
If you are submitting a new application, consider signing up for an Internal Review which provides an opportunity to receive feedback on your completed proposal. Internal Review meetings will occur remotely at the beginning of September. 
Expressions of interest must be received at cihrgrants@ualberta.ca by August 14.

For those who anticipate resubmitting to the Fall 2020 Project competition if not funded in the Spring 2020 Project competition, or those who have feedback from a previous competition, consider signing up for a Feedback Debrief. A debrief provides the opportunity to discuss feedback from CIHR reviewers before reapplying. Feedback Debrief meetings will occur remotely at the beginning of September. 
Expressions of interest must be received at cihrgrants@ualberta.ca by August 14.

For additional information about either of these supports, please contact Joanne Simala at jls24@ualberta.ca

GAP(HS) Program Update
Changes have taken place in the portfolio of the Vice President & Research Innovation (VPRI) related to staffing and the organizational structure in research services. As part of meeting the portfolio's nearly $2M budget cut in 2020-21, 20 positions were eliminated in the research services area, including some in the Grant Assist Program (GAP). The GAP program will be transitioning to a new Research Relationships team in the Research Services Office (RSO) that will continue to provide support for faculty applying to Tri-Agency and comparable external research competition.
