SUBMISSION DEADLINE: Planning Grant applications are accepted year-round while funds are available
The goal of this request for applications (RFA) is to facilitate the planning and designing of reciprocal innovation projects focusing on one of the identified priority areas: non-communicable diseases, including cancer, diabetes and hypertension; infant and maternal health; infectious diseases especially HIV, malaria, and COVID-19; mental health; and access to quality healthcare. Activities in this RFA will be implemented through principal investigators from Indiana CTSI institutions (IU, Purdue, and Notre Dame) and collaborative partnerships between Indiana state health partners, nonprofit organizations, educational institutions, health systems, government agencies, and partners from low- or middle-income countries (LMIC). The planning efforts must demonstrate an understanding of shared health challenges in underserved communities in Indiana and LMIC partner sites, a plan to develop high-impact solutions that provide reciprocal benefit to Indiana and the LMIC partner, as well as a commitment to the development of new programs or partnerships that will result in the development and demonstration of reciprocal innovation projects.
This award is designed to provide preliminary support for investigators to establish partnerships, develop project teams, identify promising health innovations for demonstration, develop evidence to support the demonstration of a reciprocal innovation in Indiana or at an LMIC partner site, conduct training to prepare for a reciprocal innovation demonstration project, and other activities needed to prepare competitive demonstration grant applications for reciprocal innovation.
Applicants may request up to $10,000 for a period of 1 year.
