Funding Opportunity: Implementing evidence-based interventions to support older adults’ independence

With numerous well-evidenced interventions already available, this funding opportunity

seeks to support research proposals that aim to scale these interventions, including generating evidence on their financial sustainability, to help ensure their longer-term adoption. They are particularly keen to support proposals that address needs in under-served communities.

 

Funding Details:

  • Up to £1.2M per project for a maximum duration of 4 years

 

Eligibility Criteria:

  • Principal Investigators must be based at a UK university, NHS Trust or other UKRI-approved research organisation.
  • Teams that include co-applicants and collaborators from both within and beyond academia are encouraged. This includes individuals with lived experience, community organisations, health and social care providers, and industry partners.

 

Application Process and Key Dates:

The call is opening in early to mid-July. Applicants must have an “expression of interest” conversation with the Trust’s triage panel by the deadline

of early September 2024, with successful applicants being invited to submit a full application by mid to late October 2024.

The DMT are hosting a webinar on 17 July 2024 (from 11am to 12.30pm) to discuss the call and give prospective applicants the chance to ask questions. Register on Eventbrite.

More information is available on DMT’s “Apply for funding” page, with full call guidelines to follow once the call is open.
