R2HC Call for Proposals opens 5 June
Published on 25/04/2018
On 5 June 2018 our R2HC programme’s Call for Proposals will open.
We are a public health research fund aiming to improve health outcomes by strengthening the evidence base for public health interventions in humanitarian crises. Our programme is the product of a strategic partnership between the UK Government (DFID), the Wellcome Trust, and the UK National Institute for Health Research (NIHR).
With topics ranging from mental health to non-communicable diseases, through R2HC we have funded over 40 grants and awarded almost £14 million to organisations working in humanitarian health since 2014.
This year’s Call
£3.5million will be available for collaborative research aiming to improve public health outcomes in humanitarian crises. Shortlisted applicants are also eligible for £10k seed funding to support proposal development and strengthen research partnerships.
Once again this will be an open Call, and priority themes will be announced in the coming months. Take a look at the timeline for this year to find out the key dates for your diary from call launch to the announcement of successful grants.
Sign up to our webinar
On 5 June 2018 we will hold a dedicated webinar to tell you more about our programme, the call and how to apply, and give you the chance to ask any questions you might have. Our webinar will run twice to accommodate different time zones.
