The Health Foundation currently has three funding opportunities which are open for application…
Innovating for Improvement
There is £1.5 million available for up to 20 teams to test and develop innovative ideas to improve health care delivery in the UK. Through the Innovating for Improvement programme, the Health Foundation are looking for projects that aim to improve health care delivery and/or the way people manage their own health care.
In this round of the programme they are particularly interested in applications for innovative projects either led by, or working in close collaboration with, primary care. Each team will receive up to £75,000 of funding, over 15 months, to support the implementation and evaluation of their health care innovation project.
Deadline: Friday 3 June 2016 at 16:00.
Efficiency Research Programme
The £1.5m Efficiency Research Programme is an open call for innovative proposals for research into system efficiency and sustainability in health and social care.
The Health Foundation are looking to fund three to five experienced research teams to explore ways that health services, or health and social care services, can address the challenge of increasing efficiency and value for money, and providing more for less.
Each project will receive between £250,000 and £500,000 for research completed over three to five years.
They are looking to support at least one project with a focus on mental health or out of hospital care.
Deadline: Thursday 28 July 2016.
Improvement Science Fellowships
The Health Foundation’s post-doctoral Improvement Science Fellowships are now open for application.
The fellowships will fund up to five individuals over three years to lead original, applied research dedicated to improving health care in the UK, as well as offering a tailored leadership development programme.
