Funding Opportunities

Research Funding Opportunity: Call for Letters of Intent

The Canadian Partnership for Stroke Recovery (CPSR), a national research network headquartered at the University of Ottawa, was recently invited to submit a proposal for funding to the federal Network of Centres of Excellence (NCE) program.

The full proposal, which builds on the legacy of the Canadian Stroke Network, will support CPSR’s activities in research, training, and knowledge translation.

If successful, the proposal will result in a substantial increase in funding for stroke recovery activities in Canada over five years, beginning in 2019.

The CPSR has issued a call for Letters of Intent to generate a suite of research projects that will be included in CPSR’s proposal being submitted to the NCE on July 19, 2018.

LOI deadline: April 16, 2018
