The goal of the Large-Team Grants program under the Discovery and Social Research component of the Canadian HIV Vaccine Initiative (CHVI) is to make a significant contribution to HIV vaccine discovery and social research, and to train the next generation of HIV vaccine researchers. Funded teams are expected to strengthen links between researchers in Canada and those in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) to increase integration and facilitate the sharing of research data and knowledge. The program, as part of the component, makes a significant contribution to research and research capacity focussed on: the discovery of HIV vaccines and related issues, and social and behavioural issues around HIV vaccines. Teams co-led by Canadian and LMIC researchers receive support for projects that build on their relevant skills and expertise and align with the Global Enterprise’s Scientific Strategic Plan.
