Toward this end, the Health Policy Research Program has recently posted on the website below a Request for Proposal (RFP) inviting proposals for the development, organization and delivery of a conference. The objective of this conference will be to

2) build a set of initial priorities for primary and synthesis research.
The deadline to apply is Wednesday, February 25, 2004.
The RFP is available at the following address:
The Health Policy Research Program, administered by the Research Management and Dissemination Division, Applied Research and Analysis Directorate, Information, Analysis and Connectivity Branch, funds extramural research that contributes to an evidence base for Health Canada's policy decisions.
