Saskatchewan Health Research Foundation (SHRF) and The Lung Association of Saskatchewan have built a strong relationship over the years with a common objective of supporting health research in Saskatchewan.
This new investment will be dedicated to furthering health research in the areas of Indigenous peoples’ lung health, cannabis and impact on lung health, and patient and caregiver education.
Competition Now Open - SHRF Announces First New Program After Refresh
SHRF is pleased to launch the first of its new programs, developed in response to engagement with the research community, partners, and other stakeholders and in line with SHRF's strategic plan and Board direction. This new program, called the Solutions Program, will be a peer-reviewed, competitive funding program to support direct research costs for interdisciplinary teams, including knowledge users conducting projects with measurable impact in focused areas.
Each year, SHRF and its funding partners identify health challenges or focus areas that will be the central feature of this program and will be matched with funding opportunity mechanisms that best suit the current state of knowledge, capacity, and desired impacts. This approach allows for flexibility and responsiveness while keeping Saskatchewan's health needs at the core.
In 2020-21, two funding opportunities will be offered within the Solutions Program:
- Innovation Grant:
- Provides up to $50,000 for one year to catalyze innovative new ideas and approaches, promoting creative problem solving to address one of the focus areas named in this year’s opportunity.
- Impact Grant:
- Provides up to $150,000 over two years to advance the translation of research into real-world settings and practical applications to address one of the focus areas named in this year’s opportunity.
As a co-funder of the Innovation Grant, The Lung Association of Saskatchewan is inviting applications through this program that focus on Indigenous peoples’ lung health, cannabis and impact on lung health, and patient and caregiver education.
