Special call for research on artificial intelligence (AI), health and society
Investigating impacts of AI on the health sector
The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) announced the next competition of the Collaborative Health Research Projects initiative. This includes a special call focused on artificial intelligence, health and society.
Successful projects will bring together researchers from natural sciences and engineering, health sciences, and social sciences and humanities, to collaborate on innovative artificial intelligence research applied to health. They will also investigate ethical, legal, and/or societal impacts associated with the development, scale and spread of artificial intelligence in the health sector.
The total amount available for this funding opportunity is $24.875 million. Of this amount, up to $5.975 million may be available through CIHR, NSERC and SSHRC to fund applications relevant to the special call. This amount may increase if additional funding partners participate. The maximum duration of support for any one grant is three years.
The deadline to submit a letter of intent is May 29, 2018, and the deadline to submit a full application is October 30, 2018. Successful applicants will be notified in March 2019.
