This programme will be open for application in October 2019.

  • The Evidence into Practice programme is designed to help research teams bridge the gap from academic research findings, to actionable information for people practising in the field.
  • Eight projects received up to £50,000 to fund the development of tools and resources to support the implementation of findings in practice.

Evidence into Practice is a programme of grants from the Health Foundation that funds the development of tools and resources, based on completed research studies, to support the implementation of findings in practice.

Aims

Our aim with this programme is to support fresh ideas that have the potential to achieve impact and change to improve service delivery, including in non-acute settings.
