Event Navigation

This workshop aims to provide training in applying for Health Research Board (HRB) Applied Partnership Awards (APA). It is suitable for researchers, health professionals and policy makers who want to learn more about the process of developing HRB APA applications

Applied Partnership Awards are designed to “bring knowledge users and academic researchers together to develop research projects that address a specific need within the Irish health or social care system” (HRB, 2018). It is expected that research findings from APA projects will directly impact on decision making in the knowledge user’s organisation. In 2019 there will be one round of APA funding with two separate peer review cycles. The closing date for Cycle 1 is the 25th January 2019. The closing date for Cycle 2 is the 13th September 2019.

During the workshop, Sara Lord from the HRB will present an overview of the APA award call and requirements. Previous successful APA awardees will also share their experiences of developing their project applications through presentations and a panel discussion. Participants will also have an opportunity to learn about the HBCRG’s new online Integrated Knowledge Translation resource kit. This resource is designed to support Irish researchers, health professionals and policy makers to conduct healthcare research that is responsive to the needs of knowledge users.
