Pre-Call Announcement The HRB will be launching in early October 2017 a call for applications for the Applying Research into Policy & Practice Postdoctoral Fellowships (ARPP) 2018.
The overarching aim of the ‘Applying Research into Policy & Practice Postdoctoral Fellowship (ARPP)’ scheme is to accelerate and enhance the development of talented and skilled health researchers at mid-stage of their research career through a mentored post-doctoral period in a cross-disciplinary and/or cross-sectoral environment. Ultimately, we want to build the capability and leadership potential of talented researchers who can apply and transfer research evidence into improved healthcare and health policy, lessening the gap between research findings, health policy and clinical practice.
The scheme offers two different arms for 1) in-practice healthcare and health policy professionals and 2) academic researchers, in recognition of the two main career gaps identified and the different structures required to support them. It is envisaged that the HRB will award up to 40 fellowships during the strategy with an overall investment of €9m.
The main principles for the scheme have been approved by the HRB Board on 30 June and can be found below. The full call document will be available once the call is launched.
Please note the call is still at developmental stage and details will be finalised over the summer
