The Health Foundation has recently launched a new research funding programme, Efficiency Research Programme.
The Health Foundation’s Efficiency Research Programme is an open call for innovative research ideas on system efficiency and value for money in health and social care.
Researchers are invited to submit ideas on innovative approaches that support transformational change needed to ensure the long-term sustainability of health and social care in the UK.
Funding is available for two or three experienced research teams to explore ways that health, or health and social care services can address the challenge of increasing efficiency and value for money, and providing more for less.
Each project will receive between £250,000 and £500,000 for research completed over three to five years.
Visit www.health.org.uk/efficiencyresearch to find out more.
The closing date for applications is 12 noon, Monday 20 October 2014.
