Our Health Delivery Research Project Grants provide support for health delivery research that directly impacts healthcare and health outcomes for New Zealanders. The proposed research must (i) have the potential to directly inform changes to health delivery policy, practice, or systems in the Aotearoa New Zealand health and disability sector, and (ii) demonstrate a clear connection to a health care need. 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.
Your principal domicile and place of employment must be Aotearoa New Zealand to be eligible for a 2023 Health Delivery Research Project Grant. This requirement applies to all first named investigators. Your application must also have the support of your host institution.
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 care delivery settings with involvement to shape the research need, undertake the research, and identify translational potential.
There is a limit of one application per first named investigator in the 2023 Health Delivery Research Project Grant funding round.
