2019 CAAIF Knowledge Mobilization Award
Academic Unit: Inquire with Unit
Memorial Deadline: Tuesday 27th, August 2019
External Deadline: Friday 30th, August 2019
The Canadian Asthma, Allergy and Immunology Foundation (CAAIF) is a charitable organization,
established to increase educational opportunities and research resources for the Canadian
Allergy and Immunology community. The 2019 competition will focus on knowledge mobilization
programs within Canada and will provide one grant of $5,000. The CAAIF Research Advisory
Committee will oversee the application review process.
The goal of the Foundation is not to replace larger granting bodies who fund allergy and/or
immunology research. Due to the limited nature of our funds, this competition may be a means of
securing seed or supplemental funding for larger projects or to initiate an innovative project idea
that requires preliminary data before a larger grant application can be made. Projects that are
more appropriately aimed at the pharmaceutical industry will not be considered.
The proposal should include a clear presentation of the knowledge to be mobilized, the description of the proposed project, expected outcomes and impact on the practice of clinical immunology and allergy in Canada. Priority will be given to projects that are sustainable and transferable rather than “one-time” Knowledge Translation events. One page of Figures and one page of references can be appended to the proposal.
