As noted on the Networks of Centres of Excellence of Canada website, the NCE has launched the Knowledge Mobilization (NCE-KM) Initiative competition. Competitions follow a multi-stage process that includes a comprehensive review conducted by top experts. Letters of Intent (LOI), the first stage of the review process, are due April 16, 2018.
The NCE-KM initiative funds networks dedicated to transferring knowledge to those who can put it into practice. NCE-KM networks are expected to create social and/or economic benefits through the application of evidence-based knowledge generated from research in combination with other sources and types of knowledge. NCE-KM networks must be driven to address needs and problems of importance to Canada and are therefore expected to be multidisciplinary and multisectoral. All applications must be co-led by a non-academic knowledge user as a co-applicant with an academic researcher.
