CIHR Update CAGS, November 2013 Presented by Peggy

CIHR Update CAGS, November 2013 Presented by Peggy Borbey Interim Director, Science, Knowledge Translation and Ethics [email protected] Today I will talk about 1. Strategic Priorities Health Research Roadmap Reforms of Open Programs Patient-Oriented Research Training Training Strategy Development 2. CIHR Training Program Updates

Competition Deadline Changes Changes to Fellowship Program Vanier/Banting Programs CIHRs Five Year Strategic Plan 2009-2015 Health Research Roadmap Health Research Roadmap Design of the new Open Suite of Programs is complete, piloting and implementation are beginning

Existing suite of open grant funding mechanisms will be reorganized into two new schemes: Foundation Scheme Project Scheme CIHR's direct training programs are not affected Foundation Scheme Stage 1 will assess the applicants experience in mentoring and training for career paths in research and other non-academic occupations

Mentorship is a significant component (20%) of the Stage 2 grant evaluation: Applicants will be required to submit a plan for engaging, training and mentoring students, trainees, emerging scholars and new/early investigators for research careers within and outside of academia Canadas Strategy for PatientOriented Research (SPOR) Canadas Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research (SPOR) is about ensuring that the right patient receives the right intervention at the right time. The objective of SPOR is to foster evidence-informed health care by bringing innovative diagnostic and

therapeutic approaches to the point of care, so as to ensure greater quality, accountability and accessibility of care. Canadas Strategy for PatientOriented Research (SPOR) SPOR is a coalition of federal, provincial and territorial partners-all dedicated to the integration of research into care: - patients and caregivers - researcher - health practitioners - policy makers - provincial/territorial health authorities - academic institutions - charities

- pharmaceutical sector Training Component Two avenues are currently being developed to support training in POR: Development of a training and career development strategy for POR Training, mentoring and career support integrated within SPOR elements, such as the SUPPORT Units and Networks. Development of a CIHR Training Strategy CIHR is developing a training strategy to focus its training efforts and guide future activities Considerations include:

What are the needs of Canadian trainees and trainers in light of a changing labour market environment? How can CIHR encourage and provide recognition for quality training? How can CIHR best influence outcomes for the trainees it supports? How, and who, tracks these outcomes? Development of a CIHR Training

Strategy Strategy would incorporate support through direct training programs and indirect training (through grants or training programs) In 2012-13: Estimated 5,700 trained through CIHRs largest operating grant program + many more in our strategic targeted grant programs More than 2,000 trained through CIHRs direct training programs

More than 1,300 trained through the Strategic Training Initiative in Health Research (STIHR) Development of a CIHR Training Strategy There are currently many surveys of trainees performed by: Granting councils Statistics Canada

CAGS CAPS Universities Also many reports on trends in higher education, trends in labour markets and skills gaps Development of a CIHR Training Strategy Some challenges related to training in Canada:

Training the right # of PhDs with the right set of skills for the labour market Ensuring high quality mentorship that will maximize the benefits for both the trainee and the trainers Research career stability Otherwe are gathering additional perspectives on challenges CIHR is committed to working with stakeholders to address these challenges Overview of CIHR Training Programs and Vanier/Banting

CIHR Direct Funding Awards CIHR Building Research Capacity CIHR also supports trainees, indirectly, through research grants. In 2012-13, over 1300 trainees were supported via the CIHR STIHR program. This includes: 70 undergraduate 275 masters students 590 doctoral students 315 post-doctoral students 115 other students Plus at least 1000 Fellows, 1300 Doctoral Students, 1500 Masters and 1900 Undergraduates were supported by research grants.

Competition Deadline Changes To gain operational efficiencies in the delivery of training and salary awards programs, the application deadline for the Doctoral Research Award, Fellowship and New Investigator Salary Award programs have been modified. Funding Opportunity Doctoral Research Awards Fellowships New Investigator Salary Awards

New Application Deadline Eligibility calculated as of October 1, 2013 October 1, 2013 November 15, 2013 October 1, 2013

December 2, 2013 September 15, 2013 Changes to Fellowship Program CIHR Fellowship program moved to one annual competition per year.
