Notice of DecisionMarch 31, 2017
dateJune 9 – 11, 2017

The Work Stress and Wellbeing Hackathon Catalyst Grant is part of the Healthy and Productive Work initiative, and will bring together researchers, knowledge users and other collaborators to find innovative solutions for a healthy and productive workforce. The grant includes a three-day Hackathon event, as well as support for the continued work of collaborations formed at the Hackathon. Teams will form around pressing challenges related to workplace stress and wellbeing, and work collaboratively to develop e-Mental health solutions that are innovative, evidence-based, gender-responsive and culturally appropriate.

Who should apply?
This grant will fund teams that consist of one researcher and one knowledge user who have identified a gap in health services that could benefit from an e-Mental health approach. Teams will be joined by collaborators from other disciplines, including e-Mental health experts and app developers. Participants will have the chance to identify the areas in which they require support and expertise.
