ACT-AEC Canada is holding an open competition to fund the development of new or existing trial networks in areas of need. Trial networks bring together relevant stakeholders (e.g., researchers, patient partners) and are focused on disease states, patient populations, or interventions. A total of $900,000 is available to fund 6 new networks (i.e., $150,000 for each successful network application) in the following streams:

1) Stream One – Mental Health. As per the ACT/AEC grant, we sought input from federal, provincial, and territorial Ministries of Health to identify areas they believed would benefit from the creation of a Canadian trial network in an area they find challenging to obtain research data. The Ministries identified mental health as an area of need, which was also identified by the ACT/AEC International Advisory Committee as an area that should be expanded. We are therefore requesting applications for the creation of a network focused on mental health randomized controlled trials (RCTs). Applicants may choose to have a broad focus on mental health or a more focused area within mental health. Our goal is to fund one application to create a new network focused on mental health RCTs.

2) Stream Two – Other Areas of Need. We will fund five new trial networks in any demonstrated area of need.
