2022 Health Delivery Research Project Grant

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 policy, practice or systems level. At a minimum, this requires having named investigators based in health care delivery settings with involvement to shape the research need, undertake the research, and identify translational potential.

To be considered within scope for funding in this round, the proposed research must:

  • have the potential to directly inform changes to health delivery policy, practice or systems, AND
  • demonstrate a clear connection to a health care need.

Full description of the scope is set out in 2022 Health Delivery Research Investment Signal.

Value

  • The HRC expects to fund a range of grant values and durations up to a maximum term of 5 years and a maximum value of $1.4 million.
  • Funding requests will be pro rata by months – the maximum amount available per full year is $466,666.
  • The HRC encourages applicants to consider the most suitable budget and timeframe for their research, including smaller research projects over a shorter duration.
  • Requested budgets need to be justified and reflect the activities being proposed.

Eligibility criteria

  1. There is a limit of one Project Grant application per First Named Investigator in the 2022 Health Delivery Research Investment Round.
  2. The maximum value of the Health Delivery Research Project Grant is $1.4 million over five years (noting that the HRC expects to fund a range of grant values and durations within this maximum threshold).
  3. The research must be within scope of the 2022 Health Delivery Research Investment Signal, i.e., it must directly connect to health delivery at a policy, practice or systems level, and the research need must be clearly substantiated.
  4. The research team must work in collaboration with key individuals in health care delivery settings. At a minimum, this requires having Named Investigators based in health delivery settings with involvement to shape the research need, undertake the research, and identify translational potential.

Note: Host organisations are responsible for ensuring that Aotearoa New Zealand is the principal domicile and principal place of employment for the First Named Investigator. By submitting an application, the host is satisfied that this criterion has been met.
