Update on COVID-19 and impact on AGE-WELL Programs and Operations (March 18)
AGE-WELL has received numerous questions about how the COVID-19 pandemic will affect various programs and operations. Specifically, we have been asked whether communications will be issued about our position on:
- no cost extensions;
- end of year financial reporting;
- annual reporting to NCE;
- funding competition timelines;
- booked travel
AGE-WELL follows the rules and policies of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) with regard to financial administration and will aim to share updates with our research community as soon as possible that align with Tri-agency measures. We anticipate that we will be in a position to confirm initial extension and postponement timelines by end of week.
Should you have any urgent questions or concerns, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
