Project Feedback Debrief

ASAP: Deadline to Declare Intent to Participate

While we understand that applicants will not receive their Fall 2018 Project competition feedback until January 23, 2019. It is difficult to recruit reviewers quickly, and we believe these meetings need to take place very quickly after January 23. Consequently, we request that Fall 2018 Project applicants sign up for a Feedback Debrief before they receive their application feedback from CIHR. We will cancel meetings for those applications that are funded as of January 23. Interested applicants should email with the following:

  1. Title of the application and 1-page summary of the proposal.
  2. List of any co-applicants.
  3. Project peer review committee to which your application is likely to be submitted.
  4. Names of six University of Alberta faculty who may be contacted to participate as reviewers.* 

*It is helpful to indicate the reason for each reviewer’s inclusion (e.g. content expert, CIHR peer review committee member) f you would like for us to recruit for example one content or methodology expert and one prior CIHR peer review committee member. Having reviewers with different expertise can be helpful. At this time, the most appropriate reviewers would those who reviewed for the Fall 2017 or Spring 2018 Project competition, followed by those who reviewed for the Open Operating Grant Program. (See the lists of UAlberta faculty who have reviewed at CIHR for Project and OOGP competitions.)

We are willing to suggest reviewers as needed.
