New call for research proposals that investigate the links between global mobility and health
A new call for research proposals that investigate how global mobility influences general health, various health determinants and the well-being of local and mobile populations has been launched by four EFC members; ”la Caixa” Foundation, Novo Nordisk Foundation, Volkswagen Stiftung and the Wellcome Trust.
The purpose of the call is to promote multi-perspective research on the links between global mobility and health, and to support research that benefits the fields of global medicine and health research in a sustainable manner, creating additional value beyond the funding period. The fund will seek out highly original and innovative research which is addressing understudied and underfunded research areas.
There are two funding stages in the application procedures, with a total grant fund of €9 million that is available for project grants of up to €1.5 million per project, for 4 to 6 projects of a 3 to 5-year duration.
The application period closes on 17 April.
