Ontario Genomics – Knowledge Mobilization and Implementation Coordination Hub


The Knowledge Mobilization and Implementation Coordination Hub (KMIC Hub) is designed to support and maximize the impacts produced by a portfolio of selected Interdisciplinary Challenge Teams (ICT) projects. The objective of this funding opportunity is to support a single pan-Canadian team that will develop and implement a portfolio-level knowledge mobilization and implementation plan for a current initiative or a funding opportunity.

Comments on Funding:
