The Competitive Research Program is intended for researchers who wish to conduct an occupational health and safety research project. The work may include studies, analyses, conception or development carried out according to a scientific process and likely to contribute to the advancement of knowledge.
An applicant who files an application as a principal investigator must be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada, hold a doctorate or the equivalent, and hold a position as a professor or teacher in a Québec post-secondary educational or research establishment.
The principal investigator is responsible for the intellectual direction of the proposed research, performs the administrative duties related to the grant, and acts as the contact person with the IRSST. Only one person may play this role.
Two competitions are held annually. Applications should be received by the first Tuesday in September and February at the latest using the Research Protocol Form Guide.
