The purpose of the Multi-Investigator Research Initiative (MIRI) grants is to support multidisciplinary teams and to accelerate novel and transformative research that will fundamentally change our understanding of nervous system function and dysfunction and their impact on health. The ultimate goal is to reduce the social and economic burden of neurological and mental health problems by prevention, early diagnosis, and treatment.
Proposals can address any aspect of nervous system function or dysfunction that has relevance to neurological and/or psychiatric diseases and conditions, including those of the special senses and the peripheral nervous system. The focus of proposals must be on investigating commonalities among multiple or related neurological and/or psychiatric conditions. The proposal must show how the research will generate findings applicable to multiple nervous system diseases or conditions. Details are available here.
Important dates for this competition are as follows:

Insight Development Grants proposals are expected to respond to the objectives put forward in the call for proposals for the Insight program. Insight Development Grants support research in its initial stages. The grants enable the development of new research questions, as well as experimentation with new methods, theoretical approaches and/or ideas. Funding is provided for short-term research development projects, of up to two years, proposed by individuals or teams. Insight Development Grants foster research in its early stages, but are not intended to support large-scale initiatives. Proposed projects may involve, but are not limited to, the following types of research activities:
Projects may also involve national and international research collaboration, and the exploration of new ways of producing, structuring and mobilizing knowledge within and across disciplines and sectors. Within the Insight Development Grants funding opportunity, funding is available for two distinct categories of scholars: emerging scholars and established scholars. Note that SSHRC also welcomes applications involving research-creation. Full details are available here.
Value and Duration
The maximum value of an Insight Development Grant is $75,000 over one to two years. A minimum budget of $7,000 in at least one of the years is required. For the current competition, at least 50 per cent of funds will be reserved for applications from emerging scholars.

INTEGRATED INNOVATIONS TO IMPROVE TREATMENTS AND EXPAND ACCESS TO CARE
Mental illness is prevalent in all regions of the world, in every community and across every income level. An estimated 13% of the global burden of disease is attributable to mental disorders, with almost three quarters of this burden affecting people in low- and middle-income countries.
To respond to this burden, Grand Challenges Canada has committed up to $30 million CAD for the most promising Bold Ideas with Big Impact. Our focus is on low- and middle-income countries. Grand Challenges Canada is looking for solutions that demonstrate a clear path to scale and sustainability, have measurable outcomes of increased access to care and improved treatment, and can ultimately serve as models that can be replicated or scaled in other low-resource settings. Full details are available here.
REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS
In this call for proposals, Grand Challenges Canada has committed up to $6 million CAD and is seeking bold ideas for products, services, policies, and implementation models that tests how to increase the number of people who have access to care, and how to have the greatest measurable treatment outcome for each person reached in a sustainable manner. Proposals must provide innovative solutions relevant to low-resource settings in low- or middle-income countries. We expect to fund proposals through two funding streams: seed (up to $250,000 CAD) and transition-to-scale (up to $1 million CAD in matched funding).
Application Deadline: January 9, 2014

- Generate new knowledge and support the development of expertise in selected areas of privacy and data protection;
- Increase awareness and understanding among individuals and organizations across Canada of their privacy rights and obligations; and,
- Promote uptake and application of research results by relevant stakeholders.
The OPC encourages proposals to undertake research and related knowledge translation initiatives in one or more of the four priority areas: Priority 1: Identity Integrity and Protection, Priority 2: Information Technology, Priority 3: Genetic Privacy & Biobanking, and Priority 4: Public Safety and National Security.
