Discovery Award

CANet is inviting CHAT (CANet HQP Association for Trainees) members to submit research proposals for CANet’s CHAT Discovery Competition.

The competition allows trainees to be the principal investigator on an original work. This award is not a funding mechanism to support/supplement currently funded research projects. This award is to support novel research ideas from applicants. Successful proposals will be given funds (maximum of $25,000) to initiate their proposed research project under the supervision/mentoring of a CANet Network Investigator. All submitted proposals must be aligned with CANet’s strategic research plan and involve one or more of the CANet areas of focus (Atrial Fibrillation, Syncope, Sudden Cardiac Death). Matching funds (cash or in-kind) from potential partners are encouraged, but not required.

Finalists will give an oral presentation during the CANet Annual Scientific Conference to be held in Ottawa, Ontario from September 12-14, 2018 to conclude the competition. To be eligible for this competition, you must be a member of CHAT and must be able to attend the Annual Scientific Conference.

All travel costs will be covered for finalists to attend the Annual Scientific Conference.
