The 14th Joint Call for Proposals by the EuroQol Working Groups is now OPEN!

The 14th Joint Call for Proposals by the EuroQol Working Groups is now OPEN. Please download the Call for Proposals document here. The EuroQol Research Foundation is inviting applications for funding by its competitive research funding programs. The Foundation aims to serve the public interest by supporting scientific research and development of instruments which describe and value health without an aim for profit.

As always, the Foundation intends to fund high quality research that is of scientific and strategic interest to the EuroQol Group and its members. WGs have been set up to support the research agenda outlined by the Executive Committee (“Exec”) that primarily focuses on the measurement and valuation of health. The WGs are appointed by the Exec to foster research within their remit, which can be found in the Working Groups document (Appendix 1 of the Joint Call document).

Proposals that seek to address one or more specific aims of the WGs will be considered for funding, but strategic priorities will influence decisions. For this call, the WGs have reviewed coverage of their aims by the current research portfolio and identified priority areas. The targeted calls below result from that priority check.

Please note:

  • The provisional funding available for the current call stands at approximately €2-2.5M. Therefore, the Exec is still willing to consider a wide range of funding opportunities of benefit to the Group. This includes research funding; travel grants; support for going abroad for a temporary stay or research period; organising academic conventions or attending conferences, an opportunity we hope more of our members will be able to take advantage of now that COVID-19 travel restrictions are relaxing in certain parts of the world.
  • Due to the increasing amount of grants that EuroQol offers, we now provide a summary of all the grants available – please refer to Appendix 4: Grants offered by EuroQol.
  • Please note the Postdoctoral Grants launched in the 13th Joint Call in March 2022 are currently being evaluated and are therefore excluded from this 14th Joint Call. We hope to re-open the call for Postdoctoral Grants in a subsequent Joint Call. The Exec continues to invite PhD projects on EuroQol topics. The intention is to fund 5-10 PHD proposals this year in a competitive scheme.
  • As a reminder: to handle the growing numbers of research proposals, the Exec has amended the procedure for low cost proposals, see appendix 2. The Exec will invite reviews of low cost proposals from the WGs. The decisions will no longer be fast tracked, but made alongside decisions on other proposals in quarterly decision making meetings.
  • Any time sensitive funding proposals can still be fast tracked using an offline procedure. If you plan to submit a time sensitive proposal, please contact Laura Pickering, Grants Manager, (pickering@euroqol.org) or Elly Stolk, Scientific Director (stolk@euroqol.org).

Submissions beyond the listed themes are also welcome. If you have an excellent idea for a research project, we invite you to seek funding for it is through the current call. If you are interested to undertake other activities that have merit to the EuroQol Group, but you are uncertain whether this is in scope, you are invited to concisely pitch your idea in a mail to the chair of the Executive Committee or Elly Stolk (stolk@euroqol.org) and Laura Pickering (pickering@euroqol.org) if you have any other questions.

The deadline for submissions is Monday October 31st 2022 at 23:59 CET. Good luck with your applications!
