The Medical Research Council has published details of its Public Health Intervention Development Scheme (PHIND). The PHIND is designed to support the development of novel and high risk interventions in areas of importance to public health in the UK or globally.
The emphasis is on proposals which aim to ‘develop the necessary evidence to underpin the later development and evaluation of novel public health interventions’. These can be quantitative or qualitative primary research, theory development and intervention design. Proposals addressing complex, population level problems in non-healthcare settings (transport, education, employment, leisure and the built environment) are welcomed.
Funding of up to £150,000 for 18 months is available.
Applications are through J-eS/MRC by 12th July.
Please see the website or contact your Funding Team representative for further details.
