Funding Organizations Launch Joint Conflict of Interest and Confidentiality Policy

March 4, 2013

The four federal research funding organizations—the Canada Foundation for Innovation, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada—have developed a new, harmonized conflict of interest and confidentiality policy. The policy will be integrated into each organization’s merit review process in the coming months.
