Grants to Canadian researchers affiliated with eligible research institutes, universities, and healthcare agencies for innovative research projects related to arthritis. Funding is intended for a wide range of project types, including pilot and feasibility studies, data analysis, small projects, and the development of new research methodologies or technologies.

The goal of the Innovation program is to support the development and testing of transformative, paradigm-shifting, concepts and approaches to address critical barriers to progress in arthritis research, challenge our understanding of arthritis and its management, and generate novel approaches to confront the challenges we face in defeating arthritis and delivering the best evidence-informed care possible. The program intends to foster novel, high-potential projects and ideas that could be expanded in the future through additional funding sources (i.e. successful operating grants, industry partnership programs, cross-discipline funding opportunities, etc.).

Successfully funded Innovation projects are based on “high risk” ideas that have a strong potential for “high reward”. The scope of high-risk projects could include proposals that focus on novel or untested tool development, cellular pathways, behavioural or psychosocial methodologies, research to address or ameliorate social or structural inequities, novel methods for delivering evidenced-based treatment or self-care interventions, unconventional devices or techniques/procedures (including measures) and/or have potential for unique translation. As projects are at an early stage of development, a high level of risk is expected and not all projects will yield anticipated results. High reward is defined as the potential to create a significant and real change or impact. Applicants must explain the anticipated change or impact that is likely to result and to whom or what will be affected by the change, and its significance. To support the novelty of the project, a thorough evaluation of the literature should be included. Applicants will be required to describe why the project is novel, as it relates to the latest methods, concepts, information, and techniques.

This program supports different types of projects including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Pilot or feasibility studies;
  • Secondary analysis of existing data;
  • Small, self-contained research projects;
  • Development of research methodology; and
  • Development of new research technology.

Applicants must focus on innovative research efforts in the priority areas. See the URL for Full Text link below for information about the priority areas.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

To be considered eligible for this award: Applications must be submitted by an eligible Principal Investigator (PI) at an eligible Canadian Host institution as defined by the Arthritis Society.

Researchers from Nova Scotia are encouraged to apply.

An applicant must hold a firm academic position (as a primary appointment) which allows the individual to engage in independent research activities for the duration of the project and includes the ability to supervise trainees and publish research results.

A researcher designated as the Principal Investigator must be based in, or formally affiliated with, an eligible Canadian Host Institution such as a university, research institute or health care agency. Graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, research associates, Adjunct Professors or Status only appointments (except where they hold a firm academic position at another Canadian institution), technical support staff, or investigators based outside of Canada are not eligible to be a Principal Investigator. Both the Principal Investigator and executive authorities of the Host Institution are required to agree to the terms of the Host Institution/Arthritis Society Agreement included as part of the application, thereby acknowledging and agreeing to all the responsibilities and obligations outlined in that Agreement.
