The Health Foundation has launched a new research programme, which seeks to understand the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in two distinct areas. This programme aligns with their strategic priorities and complements the existing research funding landscape.
They are prioritising funding for UK-focused projects that explore:
- how health and social care service delivery has changed in light of COVID-19
- the impact of COVID-19 on health inequalities and the wider determinants of health.
They are inviting projects to apply for funding of between £100k–£200k per project for a duration of up to 12 months (including set-up time).
Th Health Foundation will fund highly applied research that has direct relevance to policy and practice and welcome applications from multidisciplinary teams combining expertise from a broad range of disciplines.
They want the findings of this research to inform policy and/or service delivery decisions about the future of health and care services, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Applications involving patients, the public and people with lived experience are strongly encouraged.
