Program Description

CIHR’s 2021-2031 Strategic Plan Priority A, Strategy 1 is to champion a more inclusive concept of research excellence including developing and promoting a renewed concept of research excellence that values equity, diversity, and inclusion. This notion of excellence recognizes fundamental knowledge creation, knowledge mobilization, multiple ways of knowing, non-traditional research methods and outputs. It includes the active collaboration of patient partners (also known as “people with lived experience”), the public, health care providers, decision-makers, and other users of research outputs throughout the research process.

As CIHR embarks on this commitment to champion a new concept of research excellence and develop a guiding framework, CIHR-IMHA will contribute by awarding Inclusive Research Excellence prizes that will solicit examples of research excellence from the IMHA community which will be used as one input to guide this important work. Note that there may be elements within this funding opportunity that do not align with CIHR’s developing concept of inclusive research excellence. CIHR is committed to integrating new evidence and data to guide and iteratively improve its programs, policies and practices
