Small Studies Program

CPWR is now accepting applications for funding from the Small Studies Program

CPWR’s Small Study Program provides seed money of up to $30,000 to investigate promising new research initiatives. Many major research projects began with a small study to demonstrate their viability or test their approach. Other small studies resulted in important stand-alone projects.  A survey of researchers funded under this Program found that more than 60% had published their findings in peer reviewed journals.

We encourage innovative research proposals focused on:

  • Getting best practices adopted – research to practice (r2p)
  • Addressing emerging issues and exploring new technologies
  • Safety culture and safety climate
  • Disseminating safety and health information to specific audiences
  • Exploring innovative or new directions in construction sciences
  • Reaching high risk sectors: small employers, vulnerable workers, residential and light commercial construction
