  • Stakeholder consultations, including citizen engagement activities, regarding needs, gaps and opportunities in the health research landscape, priority policy issues and/or priority research questions, where such common understanding is currently lacking or requires further development;
  • Initial planning and discussion of a research project among potential team members including researchers, knowledge-users and/or partners to assess the viability of the research project and the partnership;
  • Conducting an environmental scan or preliminary synthesis of relevant literature, activities or programs;
  • Early-stage planning to determine possible commercial viability of a discovery;
  • Opportunities for knowledge exchange involving stakeholder linkages (to inform practice, care, and/or policy) that could potentially lead to an application to a funding opportunity;
  • Gatherings of partners, health researchers, and/or knowledge users where the main objective is to facilitate regional/national and/or international collaboration among individuals or groups from a variety of backgrounds (for example, building new and existing multi-sectored partnerships that include a significant number of participants from outside the conventional scientific community, consensus meetings, networking and partnership development events) interested in applying to a funding opportunity.

Dissemination:

  • Education of groups such as patients, health professionals, community organizations, policy-makers, the general public;
  • Knowledge dissemination that will inform practice, clinical care, partnership best practices, policy and decision making;
  • Dissemination and/or discussion of research findings at scientific meetings, workshops, conferences, congresses or symposia;
  • Development and dissemination of KT products and tools (e.g., written materials in various formats, plain language summaries, decision support tools, educational materials, web sites).
