The CRISM Atlantic node aims to provide a dynamic research environment where clinicians, researchers, persons with lived experience, knowledge users and public health stakeholders converge to discuss and act on priorities in substance use research. The node is committed to supporting the development and implementation of funded protocols that are relevant, innovative and have the potential to accelerate the transfer of scientific knowledge in intervention and best practices in the management of substance use.
The Research Development Program aims to support CRISM Atlantic node members in the development of research projects and protocols that seek to:
Foster collaborations within the node, nationally, and internationally
Although this funding opportunity/competition attracts CRISM Atlantic Node members with experience in the competitive research grant application environment, we strongly encourage node members with less experience to seek collaboration opportunities with CRISM Atlantic Researchers to submit eligible protocols and projects to the RDP for review.

A maximum of $10,000 can be awarded to an emerging project proposal (category 1 or 2). A maximum of $15,000 can be awarded to a promising project proposal (category 3). The number of awards will depend on funds available.
