Subject: Update 2 - Renewed Canadian Common CV (CCV) for CIHR
Date: 9 August, 2012 1:01:23 PM CDT
To: University Delegates
Dear University Delegates / Chers et chères délégué(e)s universitaires,

The message below will be sent to the research community via E-Alert as soon as the French version is
available. / Le message ci-dessous sera envoyé à la communauté scientifique via cyberalerte dès que la
version française sera disponible.


In follow up to the communique of July 31, 2012 (E-Alert issue no. 125) (http://www.cihr-
irsc.gc.ca/e/45623.html), CIHR is providing this update on the Renewed Canadian Common CV for CIHR

CIHR thanks the research community for its continued patience and understanding as we transition to
the new CCV. Please do not hesitate to contact CIHR at ccv-cvc@cihr-irsc.gc.ca or 1-888-603-4178 to
provide feedback or request further assistance.

We will continue to provide regular E-Alert updates as issues with the renewed CCV for CIHR users are


• It is not necessary to enter data in the Generic CV. Select the Funding CV for CIHR to focus your
efforts on providing the information that CIHR requires for application to the funding opportunity.

• For the Registration deadline, only the “Registration CV” is required. This short CV requires
completion of two CCV sections: Personal Information and User Profile.

• “Contributions” may be submitted as attachments, as in the past. Please note that this includes the
full range of “contributions” (e.g., publications, presentations, interviews and media relations,
intellectual property, etc.).
• Contributions information is required for the last five years only for most grant programs, including
the Open Operating Grants Program.

• Applicants are encouraged to complete their CCVs as early as possible, allowing additional time to
familiarize themselves with the new system and its additional data requirements.

• Training videos highlighting what is new in the Common CV and Tips and Tricks for using the new
system are now available on the CIHR website http://www.cihr-irsc.gc.ca/e/45262.html.


The following enhancements are underway and are expected to be implemented during the week of
August 13, 2012.

• Information will be displayed in chronological order (e.g., Funding History, Contributions) or in
alphabetical order (e.g., Disciplines Trained in), as they were in the previous version of the CV.

• Funding amounts for grants or awards held that were entered in the previous CCV will now be
populated automatically into the new CV (Research Funding History section).


1. Complete the “Funding CV” template for CIHR; not the Generic CV template. Completing the CIHR
CV will focus your efforts on providing only the information required for application to a CIHR funding

To access the CIHR CV, from the drop down menu at the top of the CCV Welcome page, select “CV,”
then “Funding,” then select CIHR as the “Funding Source.” Then select the appropriate CV type
(Academic, Knowledge User or Registration).

2. CIHR CV – Registration Components. When registration is a requirement of the funding opportunity,
only the Registration CV is required at this stage of the application process. This short CV requires the
completion and validation of only two CCV sections, which are mandatory:


3. CIHR CV – Application Components. For application to CIHR funding opportunities, applicants are
required to complete a CIHR Academic CV or Knowledge User CV by the application deadline date. (To
determine which CV type is applicable, please consult the “How to Apply” section of the funding

In addition to the information already entered as part of the registration process, both the Academic
and Knowledge User CVs contain the following optional sections. Applicants are encouraged to enter the
data most relevant to their role and application, taking note of any specific requirements within the
“how to apply” section of the funding opportunity.

These sections, and their subsections, are listed within the CV templates. Note that with the new version
of the CCV, reviewers will see only those sections that have been completed.

4. Contributions may be submitted as attachments. In recognition of the potential burden required to
enter all contributions as structured data, CIHR is phasing in the requirement for it to be entered as data
elements in CCV.

Applicants currently have three options with respect to the submission of the full range of contributions
(including publications, presentations, interviews and media relations, and intellectual property):

Option 1. Follow the same process that has been used in the past by submitting your contribution
information in PDF format in ResearchNet, leaving the contributions section in the CCV blank for the
time being;

Option 2. Enter a minimum of five contributions (across all contribution types) over the course of the
previous five years into the Common CV. The remaining contributions may be provided as an
attachment in ResearchNet as part of the application for funding; or

Option 3. Enter contributions details as data into the new CCV system.

Most funding opportunities, including the Open Operating Grants Program, require contribution
information for the last five years only. Please consult the funding opportunity for the number of years
of contributions information required.

If you have a large number of contributions or if you are not sure where to enter your contributions in
the structured format, it is recommended that you provide your contributions as a PDF attachment to
your application in ResearchNet.

5. Lifetime number of publications is no longer required. The “Lifetime number of publications” table
no longer exists in the new CCV. It is not necessary to enter all of your contribution data beyond what
CIHR requires for each contribution category as specified in the funding opportunity.

6. Steps for previewing, printing and submitting your CCV. The new CCV provides the ability to submit
your CCV directly to CIHR, eliminating the need to attach a PDF copy of the final CIHR CV to your CIHR
application on ResearchNet.
Step 1. Preview your CCV: Within the CCV system, select “Preview” to review the draft PDF version of
the CCV. You may return to the CCV to make any revisions in your entries as required, and then repeat
the Preview process. You may print the PDF.

Step 2. Submit your CCV: Within the CCV system, select “Submit.” This generates a unique CCV
confirmation number for this version of your CIHR CCV and submits your CCV to CIHR. You may make
revisions after submitting the CCV, using the Preview function. After previewing and resubmitting your
revised CCV, you will receive a new confirmation number for the revised version of the CV. You may
view each submitted version of your CV and its confirmation number under the History tab within the

Step 3. Any project participants, for example Co-Applicants, other Principal Applicants and/or
Knowledge Users, must provide their CCV confirmation numbers to the Nominated Principal Applicant.

Step 4. Link all CCVs to your CIHR application: The Nominated Principal Applicant/Candidate enters
his/her CCV confirmation number and those of the other participants in the application on ResearchNet.
ResearchNet will validate that the CCV confirmation number submitted is valid.

If you are applying to more than one CIHR funding opportunity, you may reuse the same CCV by
entering the same confirmation number. It is not necessary to create a new CIHR CV for each funding
opportunity if you wish to submit the exact same data.

Step 5. View the CIHR CCV submitted: Submitted final CIHR CCVs and their associated confirmation
numbers can also be viewed under the History Tab in the CCV.
