Canada India SCI Innovation Award – Applications Now Open

Deadline for Letters of Intent: Monday, October 15, 2018

The Rick Hansen Institute is pleased to partner with IC-IMPACTS and Indian Spinal Injuries Centre to launch a grant competition to fund innovation and research in the treatment and care of people living with SCI and secondary complications in Canada and India. 

This competition is the product of a partnership agreement between the three organizations announced in February 2018 by the Honourable Kirsty Duncan, Minister of Science and Sport in New Delhi.

An amount equivalent and up to CAD $50,000 will be granted to the successful proposal(s) for research and development. This amount may be supplemented by cash or in-kind support by host institutes or other agencies associated with the researchers. 

This competition will seek to fund proposals from Canadian and Indian researchers in the deployment-ready stage of development related to spinal cord injury prevention and management. Pre-existing collaborations between Canadian and Indian researchers are not a requirement for a proposal submission. The partners in the competition will help identify and match collaborators.

Full guidelines for submitting a letter of intent can be found on the IC-IMPACTS website
