Brain Canada is currently developing programs to bridge translational gaps for brain health innovations—gaps that limit, if not prevent, the effective translation of research investment efforts into concrete impacts on brain health for Canadians.

Impacts can include: “social innovation”, where Brain Canada can support efforts to improve the health system and quality of life, as well as achieve justice, equity, and positive social change; or “patient-centred impact”, where Brain Canada can fill translational gaps in the early stage of discovery to help bring solutions to patients faster.

The translational programs are a key component of Brain Canada’s application to the Strategic Science Fund (SSF) – the Federal government’s new approach aimed at improving the effectiveness of federal investments in science and research organizations. If successful, Brain Canada will implement the translational programs over the SSF funding period, 2024-29.

Brain Canada is currently seeking brief EOIs from eligible applicants that meet the requirements of the translational programs. The complete EOI package is due on July 25, 2022. More details are outlined in the Request for EOIs.
