Trainee Renewal Report Form
Alberta Innovates (AI) trainee award recipients (Studentships and Fellowships) are required to submit annual reports. These reports are used for renewal of the Trainee award and for AI reporting. The information gathered helps us measure the impact of our funding, and helps inform future investments in programs like our Training and Early Career Development (TECD) awards.
AI has recently reviewed and updated the reporting process for the TECD Programs to more efficiently capture essential data. The Annual Progress Report Form which has been in place since 2012 will now be collected in two ways: the Renewal Report and the Annual Impact Report.
The Renewal Report ensures compliance with the terms and conditions of the award for renewal purposes. The information provided helps AI ensure that the trainee is supported and award requirements are met. The Renewal Report is due prior to the end of each award funding year.
The updated renewal report is available to all trainees renewing as of January 2016 and later. The completed Renewal Report form, signature page and any supporting documentations should be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org at least two months prior to end date of the current period of support. A hard copy of the completed report is not required by AI.
The Annual Impact Report is one data source used to capture the health research impacts achieved through AI funding. All information for the report is collected through an electronic tool called Researchfish®. The impacts collected in Researchfish® are aligned with AI’s Health Research to Impact Framework, which is based on the Canadian Academy of Health Sciences (CAHS) framework. Aggregated results collected through the Annual Impact Report are communicated to a diverse set of stakeholders including the public. The Annual Impact Report annual submission deadline is April 30.
