Health Innovation Funding Investment (HIFI) Awards

Health is produced by a complex interplay of individual, social, political, and economic factors and influenced by ongoing developments in technology, such as artificial intelligence and big data, as well as emergent global threats like climate change and pandemics. 

The Health Innovation Funding Investment (HIFI) Awards are intended to catalyze health researchers to undertake innovative, possibly risky activities that have the potential to create change. The HIFI Awards acknowledge and support cross-faculty and cross-campus research at UBC's Vancouver and Okanagan campuses.

Awards of $10,000 to $25,000 will be granted to faculty members who are collaborating across faculties, disciplines, and campuses to launch, develop, or translate innovative health-related research.
