Special Initiatives Funding Program Review Panel
BrainsCAN prides itself on being agile and responsive to initiatives that promote and move forward cognitive neuroscience at Western and abroad. As such, BrainsCAN accepts, on a continuous basis, funding applications for these types of special initiatives. The types of proposals this fund has previously supported include, but are not limited to, knowledge mobilization; workshops/seminars; collaboration development; technology / capacity development; and community outreach.
Please refer to the SIF Review Panel Terms of Reference for further details.
The Review Panel is chaired by Vania Prado who reviews applications to determine if they are within the mandate of a specific BrainsCAN core. If they are, the funding request will be sent to the appropriate core’s steering committee.
If the application is a central BrainsCAN priority AND less than $1500, the PIs will be invited to complete the short-form application to be reviewed by the SIF chairs.
If the application is a central BrainsCAN priority AND more than $1500, the PIs will be invited to complete the Full Special Initiative Form to be reviewed by the SIF panel that will provide funding recommendations to the Executive Committee to be ratified.
