Knowledge Translation Canada Summer Institute 2012
We are pleased to announce the Knowledge Translation (KT) Canada Summer Institute to be held in Ottawa from June 4-6, 2012. The purpose of this Summer Institute is to provide participants with the opportunity to increase their understanding of knowledge translation research as well as opportunities and challenges in this field. The Summer Institute will provide participants with the chance to network with colleagues including national and international KT experts.
The theme of the 2012 Institute is "Developing KT Leaders/Practitioners of Tomorrow".
The Summer Institute (SI) is aimed at graduate students, post-doctoral and clinical fellows, and junior faculty who study issues relevant to KT and those who want to learn more about how to advance their research skills in this area. We encourage applications from trainees working in a wide range of disciplines that span all of CIHR's research themes (biomedical, clinical, health services, and population health).
Attendees will have the opportunity to share their research projects (proposals and/or projects with preliminary results) through poster sessions that will facilitate further networking opportunities. Participation in the poster session also allows attendees to be eligible to apply for funding from their home institutions (where this funding is available) to attend the summer institute.
New This year, the SI is open to Junior Faculty. We welcome new faculty and senior faculty new to KT to apply. The cost for faculty to attend is $1000 (covers registration, accommodation for 3 nights, course materials and food associated with the SI).
The application deadline is March 15, 2012, 11:59 PM.
