Public Health Intervention Development 2022

UK Research and Innovation

Relevent Country: United Kingdom

Apply for funding for the early-stage development of an intervention that seeks to address a UK or global public health challenge.

MRC is looking to support the early-stage development of interventions that seek to address either UK or global public health challenges. This might include qualitative and quantitative primary research and the development of theory and logic models. However, emphasis should be placed on developing the intervention.

This opportunity supports the incorporation of systems thinking in addressing public health challenges. It is justifiable to focus on just one aspect of a system as long as the wider systems context is recognised, for example, in the framework for evaluation.
