ResearchMatch Joint Application
1. Update the initial project creation in the Joint proposal webform (below)
Things that change:
- Abstract (0.5 pages maximum)
- Project Description (3 pages maximum including figures) (Note: length should be longer than initial description)
- Division of the project description can be organized around the selection criteria and include the following sections but not limited to: i) Background ii) Project Objectives & Aims iii) Project Implications iv) Future directions
- Figures can be uploaded
- Description of datasets to be used
- Explain why you see this as a collaborative research project and what you hope to gain from the collaboration. Highlight any potential of the proposed work to progress to a competitive funding application. Precise whether this is a new project for which you have no funding yet or a large project that is already funded, in this case, indicate what this funding will allow you to achieve.
2. Attach the CV of the collaborator in the ResearchMatch portal.
Note: The faculty member that created the initial project is responsible for submitting the finalized project.
Evaluation criteria for joint proposals are:
- One biological or clinical researcher and one data scientist who haven’t worked together before
- Scientific excellence
- Evidence of synergy in the proposed collaboration
- Potential of the proposed work to progress to other funding competitions
- Relevance to other McGill initiatives will also be considered
- Impact of the collaboration in the laboratory setting
