2022 Open Research Round recipients

Congratulations to the 2022 Open Research Round recipients!

Our Open Research Round focuses on projects that address at least one of our strategic priorities and funding is available under Exploratory and Intervention categories:

  • Our Exploratory Research Grants support exploratory or formative studies to address gaps in health promotion research, demonstrating the potential to influence health promotion in WA. 
  • Our Intervention Research Grants support projects that will develop and test or inform a new health promotion program or policy intervention.

We are calling for Expressions of Interest for the 2023 Open Research Round. For more information about the Open Research Round including how to apply visit: Apply for an Exploratory and Intervention Grant – Healthway.
