In 2023, our Impact Research Grants round aims to focus our investment on this gap. We will fund research proposals that can build on an already initiated body of work and catalyse its potential to create greater health promotion impacts in the real world.
For this round, the priority themes are:
|Healthy and sustainable food systems||Place-based systems interventions focusing on increasing equitable access to nutritious and affordable food from sustainable food systems|
|Active communities and sport||Improvements in the built and social environment to promote physical activity in geographic areas or communities that experience greater systemic inequities
|Social connection and mental wellbeing||Community-centred, strength-based models to improve mental wellbeing of people and communities facing significant systemic inequities|
|Climate, environment and health||Place-based research to support improved community health, wellbeing, and resilience in areas in Victoria that are more vulnerable to climate change impacts
In addition to addressing at least one of the priority themes, proposals must satisfy the following criteria:
- Build on a successfully initiated research project
- Embed equity considerations throughout all stages of the research project
- Actively work in partnership with policy makers, practitioners, and communities
- Specify how the research findings will be strategically disseminated and communicated to communities, policy makers, practitioners and the public more broadly
