Calls for 2024 launched

The Czech Ministry of Health launched a call for proposals under the Programme for the Support of Applied Health Research for 2024-2027.

Support will be provided to applied research projects (implemented for the sake of new knowledge directed towards a specific, predetermined practical goal and a given application of the results in healthcare). The essential criteria are a clear focus of the result on its use in healthcare, applicability of the result and its clearly demonstrable impact on clinical practice.

The programme is divided into two sub-programmes:

Sub-programme 1: principle investigator is a natural person engaged in research holding a Ph.D. degree or equivalent at the time of submission of the proposal

Sub-programme 2: principle investigator is a natural person engaged in research who, in the year of the submission of the project proposal, is no more than 8 years after obtaining his/her Ph.D. degree or its equivalent, or has obtained it no later than on the date of conclusion of the contract/issuance of the project decision. If the principal investigator has been on maternity or parental leave, has suffered a long-term illness, or has interrupted his/her scientific career for similar objective reasons, the time limit of 8 years from Ph.D. degree or its equivalent is increased by this period. These facts (award of the degree, parental leave, etc.) shall be documented by the applicant by means of an affidavit.
The maximum amount of eligible costs is CZK 7 million.

Application forms are available online in the ISPV application. A user account is required to access this application. If you do not have a user account in ISPV, you need to ask Veronika Weissová to set one up. A condition for submitting a project proposal is to include principle investigator´s and co-investigator´s "ORCID ID", more info here.
