Grants to support applicants affiliated with Alberta, Canada organizations presenting innovative and effective ways to mobilize health research to: 1) inform policy and practice decisions; 2) help individuals, families, and communities make choices for better health; and 3) support commercial development of research discoveries.
The objectives of the KTA Grant are to:
- Facilitate the movement of health research and innovation discoveries toward practical applications;
- Support the translation of research activities that are aligned with the thematic priority areas defined in Alberta’s Health Research and Innovation Strategy and other priorities identified by AIHS;
- Catalyze and support collaborative ways of integrating knowledge translation (KT)* throughout the health research and innovation system;
- Advance the understanding of effective KT, improve the practice of KT, and support innovation and the use of research evidence in decision-making; and
- Support commercial development of research discoveries.
*For the purposes of these grants, knowledge translation (KT) is defined as a deliberate process of information exchange between producers and potential users of research to support evidence-informed decision-making and decision-maker informed research, ultimately for the betterment of the health and well-being of individuals.
A critical component of the KTA Grant is the evaluation of results, and demonstrating how these add to the body of knowledge on effective KT. The evaluation could focus on the effectiveness of KT models and mechanisms; generating new KT models; addressing methodological questions in the conduct of KT research; and testing the effectiveness of processes to develop new, more effective KT strategies.
The KTA grant covers direct KT research costs and may be used as a matching grant or seed grant for other KT grant programs.
