Which competition fits best with your project?

C2 awards bring together researchers and research users to co-develop research aligned with BC’s health system priorities. Through meaningful collaboration, teams co-develop research questions and processes to help ensure research findings are relevant to users.

Reach awards bring together researchers and research users to support the dissemination of research evidence, within the context of related knowledge, and increase its potential impact. Together, teams co-develop events, activities, and/or tools, so they can share research findings and evidence with audiences who can directly use the knowledge.

If your intended activity takes place early in the research process, such as the co-development of a research question or process, consider applying to the a Ccompetition. If the activity takes place at the end, such as the dissemination of evidence, consider the Reach competition.

If you have questions about which competition to apply for, please contact before submitting your application.
