UK Health Systems Research Initiative (HSRI) Call 8 Research Grant, Outline Stage
Deadline: 19 January 2021
This Research Grant call funds research to strengthen and improve health systems in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs; including Colombia). The call welcomes multidisciplinary, collaborative and multi-country/multi-site applications that address a clearly defined challenge faced by health systems. Proposals must situate this challenge within an understanding of the broader health system linkages and describe how and why findings have the potential to improve the health of people living in LMICs.
There is an expected £3-4m available for this call from the UK FCDO, the UK Medical Research Council (MRC), and Wellcome, in collaboration with the UK Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). Funds requested by LMIC research organisations (ROs) will be funded at 100% of the full economic cost and projects can be up to five years duration.
Researchers may request support for all research costs that are attributable to the project. For example, appropriate percentages of the investigators’ time, scientific, technical and administrative staff including statisticians, research nurses, etc., consumables, items of equipment, data or sample handling and archiving and travel.
This research grant call has a two-stage application process: an obligatory outline stage and a full application stage. Decisions for invitation to the full stage are expected in March 2021 with funding decisions expected in October 2021.
Deadline (outline stage): 19 January 2021 16:00 UK time (11:00 Colombian time)
