NSHRF competition to create Evidence Review Synthesis Centres

The Nova Scotia Health Research Foundation is hosting a national competition for the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) in order to identify two Evidence Review Synthesis Centres (ERSC). The Centres will be expected to produce systematic reviews in order to support the Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care (Task Force) guidelines and recommendations. Up to two (2) ERSCs will be funded through this competition. Each ERSC will be provided with a core operating budget of $100,000 per year, for two years. Additional funding is tied to the deliverables which would be assigned to each Centre based on expertise and ability (up to $115,000 per review; up to $40,000 per guideline update).

The selected ERSCs will be funded for an initial period of 2 years. At the discretion of PHAC and the Task Force, a renewal may be offered ranging from 1-3 years. Applications will be accepted until Friday, August 21, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. (AST)
