2020 Health Delivery Research Project Grant

All details about this funding opportunity (including the application and assessment processes) are available in the 2020 Health Delivery Research Investment Round Application Guidelines document (available below). Please note that in light of the impact of COVID-19 on the health sector in New Zealand, application closing dates now differ to those listed in the Application Guidelines.

The Health Delivery Research Project Grant provides support for health delivery research of varying values and durations.

The research must be connected to health delivery at a practice, policy or system-level. At a minimum, this requires having Named Investigators based in healthcare delivery settings with involvement to shape the research need, undertake the research, and identify translational potential.

Applicants will need to identify their research as primarily aligning with one of the following categories, noting that there could be overlap between the categories, depending on the scope of the research:

  • Health technologies
  • Health services
  • Health economics
  • Social science
  • Clinical (later stages)
  • Implementation science
  • Other health delivery category (specify).

Descriptions of these categories are set out in Part A of the 2020 Health Delivery Research Investment Round Application Guidelines.
