The 2016 Healthway Research Funding Round is now open, with applications closing on Thursday 31 March 2016.
Healthway has made some changes to the Research Program in 2016, and all applicants are encouraged to read the guidelines and application forms carefully when completing their applications. This year the assessment criteria for Healthway research grants require applicants to demonstrate a greater focus on research translation, strengthening the requirement for researchers to engage and collaborate with the end-users of the research. Applicants will be required to describe policy and practice outputs to demonstrate how the research outcomes will impact on improving the health of the WA community.
There are three categories of funding available in 2016; Exploratory Research Grants, Intervention Research Grants and a Special Research Initiative focusing on disadvantaged groups. The guidelines and application forms are now available.
