New funding opportunity: MSFHR Reach Awards

At MSFHR, we believe that health research funders have an important role to play in promoting and advancing knowledge translation.

As part of our commitment to facilitate the implementation of health research knowledge, we are excited to present the first MSFHR Reach Awards.

New for 2017, the MSFHR Reach Awards provide funding to support the dissemination and uptake of research evidence to inform and improve further research, practice and policy-making.

Each award will help teams of health researchers and research users collaboratively plan and implement dissemination activities, adapting messages and mode of delivery in order to reach audiences who can directly use the information.

The goal is to facilitate the uptake of health research evidence via activities, events or tools that enable the transfer, exchange and implementation of research knowledge, a key component of successful knowledge translation.

Reach Award applications are due to open in the first week of April​, 2017. For guidelines, eligibility requirements and details on how to apply, please visit Reach 2017.
