Doing the Double-Double by 2019.Petition to double open operating grants.
On February 9, 2012, CIHR released a document describing proposed changes to the open suite of programs and the peer review process. If implemented, these proposals will introduce broad-ranging and fundamental changes to the mechanisms by which operating grant funds are distributed. We urge all members of the "CIHR community" to carefully examine the proposals and to respond to the on-line poll established by CIHR. In addition, considering the inherent limitations of prescribed questions, we encourage you all to personally or collectively communicate your views directly to CIHR.
We also encourage you to share your views of these proposals and so this site has been set up for that purpose. We believe that the proposed changes would represent the most significant changes since CIHR was established and therefore merit a careful examination from all possible perspectives. Your views will be especially valuable at this time in helping to shape policies that will enable Canadian research community to sustain it's enviable reputation on the international stage.
