HEALTH, SCIENCE, & TECHNOLOGY REQUESTS FOR PROPOSALS
We have issued our second wave of requests for proposals (RFPs) to advance the research element of the Foundation’s Health, Science, and Technology (HST) agenda.
The RFPs address questions in all five of our research areas:
- New and better tools for research: Product characterization
- Outcomes research
- Improving the effectiveness of cessation and harm reduction interventions
- Research on policy-level enablers of smoking cessation and harm reduction: effective communication of risk and harm levels
- Systems science and implementation research
The Foundation is accepting research proposals, requests for scoping work to further inform our thinking, and expressions of interest to identify organizations with relevant experience and expertise to collaborate on these topics. Applicants must have the internal capacity for sex- and gender-based analysis where appropriate, and encourage a gender balance in team leadership and team composition.
We look forward to working with organizations from, or with experience working in, countries where most smokers live. We also look forward to hearing from organizations not currently working on smoking, but interested in applying their expertise and experience to this major global health challenge.
The closing date for submissions is May 13, 2019.
