Calls for 2023 launched

The Czech Ministry of Health launched a call for proposals under the Programme for the Support of Applied Health Research for 2020-2026.

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 - the criterion is the age of the researchers:

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, is not more than 35 years old at the year of submission of the proposal and holds a Ph.D. degree or equivalent or will hold a Ph.D. degree no later than at the date of conclusion of the contract/issuance of the project decision. At the same time, the age of the members of the research team (scientific collaborators) is limited to a maximum age of 35 years at the year of submission of the proposal, except for one person who may reach a maximum age of 45 years. The maximum amount of eligible project costs is EUR 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.
