Next expected deadline: TBD

Value & Term

Up to $250,000 per year for up to 3 years


To allow a small group of collaborators (minimum three) to come together to complete a defined project. The focus is on a particular project, with no expectation that the collaboration will necessarily continue beyond the duration of this non-renewable grant. This opportunity also provides a framework for collaborators who may want to evolve their project into a more complex CRIO Program or CRIO Team.

How do I apply for the CRIO Project?

Important: Please review the AIHS Collaborative Research and Innovation Opportunities (CRIO) – Project Program Guide (2012/2013) before applying.

What is the review process for CRIO Project?

The LOIs and full applications will be evaluated by an expert LOI review committee and an expert full application review committee. The committees will be interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral. The committee will have broad-based representation across the research continuum. They will include investigators with excellent track records of either fostering or conducting interdisciplinary research and/or in leading interdisciplinary research teams from academic and industry sectors, as well as individuals that can provide end-user perspectives.

While separate research components may be included in the application, each CRIO application will be evaluated as a single, integrated entity. Applicants must demonstrate that the CRIO not only brings added value but is essential to the group’s approach to the complex research question and the health issue being addressed, as well as the group’s ability to generate new knowledge and translate it toward improvements in health or in the health care system.

Applications will be reviewed based on the following assessment criteria:

    • Engagement with knowledge-/end-user collaborators and/or partners: End-user(s) are meaningfully engaged in the proposed research activities providing the support necessary for the deliverables to have the intended impact;
    • Collaborators: The proposed collaborators have the necessary complementary expertise and/or experience to successfully bring the proposed research activities to their planned end-point;
    • Significance and Innovation: The proposed research activities are based on an important and well delineated health question/issue and define a focused set of deliverables;
    • Approach: The collaborative approach described for the proposed research is necessary, integrated, feasible, and aligned to the generation of the specific and defined deliverables;
    • Environment: The environment described for the proposed research will contribute positively to the achievement of the defined objectives.
