The purpose of the KT innovation Incubator is to promote and facilitate innovative knowledge translation projects in childhood disability.
Our KT Innovation Incubator grant competition will award $20,000 to a winning knowledge translation project that aims to improve life outcomes for children with brain-based developmental disabilities and their families.
Only one project will be funded in this competition.The winning project is expected to be completed within a year. Funding is non-renewable, but a maximum extension of 6 months will be granted for project activities to be completed.
The winning team will have the support from:
- The Knowledge Translation Program team, including the expertise of the KT Advisory Committee
- The KT committee researchers will actively support the recipients of this grant in evaluating (or demonstrating) impact, therefore generating research knowledge about the knowledge translation activities.
- Additionally, we will conduct a case study about innovative knowledge translation based on the KT Innovation Incubator’s winning project.
- CHILD-BRIGHT Communications (i.e. social media channels to promote a specific event).
