HAHSO Innovation Grants – Internal Review Timeline
The Department of Pediatrics will offer internal review of all HAHSO applications. Please review the timelines carefully.

Eligibility and Application Process

For a summary of the purpose of the funds and scope of projects that would be eligible for support, please see IFPOC definition of innovation; additional information regarding the local guidelines and application process are also available. A full proposal consists of the Form P1 – HAHSO Project Proposal 2016-17 and Project Budget P2 forms – both fillable forms. Successful applicants will be notified by March 31st, 2016. Maximum funding allocation is $100,000 per year x two years.

If you wish to apply for an innovation grant, you must declare your intentions via the HAHSO website. Once staff receive your notice, you will be registered as a potential applicant and provided with a secure online folder to upload your application. A confirmation email will be sent to your current email account with the link to your folder, and password after you have indicated your intention to apply. Please allow a few days after declaring your intention for your folder to be created by HAHSO staff and your link to be mailed to you.

Internal Review in Pediatrics

The internal review process in Pediatrics will be coordinated by Dr. Anthony Chan and Lindsay Akrong. Proposals will be reviewed by the suggested peer reviewer; research budgets will be reviewed by Tammy Troy-Hempey and Lindsay Akrong; Dr. Lehana Thabane will provide statistical review. If you choose to opt-out of internal review, please note that budget review is still mandatory, as with all grant submissions.

Lindsay Akrong will also facilitate obtaining the Chair’s signature on grant documents/HRS checklist, with timeline to follow.
